Location: Santa Clarita Aquatic Center, Castaic, COC

Monday - Friday, Saturdays 

 

Swimmers ages 13-14 can apply to join our JO III Group.  Time standards achieved and previous attendance are weighed heavily in the acceptance process.  The objective of all JO III workouts is to help the swimmers gain the skills necessary to be ready for our Senior groups and reach the Sectional, Junior National, and National level.  The training methods and techniques used are similar to the Senior groups and designed to prepare you for the elite levels of swimming while still making fundamentals and versatility a priority. This group has an 85% attendance requirement. Move ups will be done in August, January, and April but can occur at any time.  Group will be no larger than 30 swimmers.
