Senior Group [Senior Intermediate] (typically 14-18): All high school age swimmers not invited to the Gold Group must register for the senior group. The senior group will focus on continued refinement of competitive stroke techniques as well as a heavier emphasis on training and conditioning for optimal performance. Flexibility, reaction time, and strength training are emphasized as parts of the senior group dryland regimen. Senior swimmers will participate in supervised weight training as a part of their strength conditioning plan. Senior swimmers are also expected to participate in leadership and volunteer opportunities representing the team and the GMVY association.
- No practice attendance requirements, however, the senior and gold groups are trained and conditioned based on an overload and taper concept. If swimmers are not attending practices regularly then the body does not adapt to the overload and consequently cannot produce a taper effect prior to a goal meet. For best results, attend ALL practices!
