Moc 2

The Moc 2 group is for swimmers age 7 to 10 who can complete a legal 50-yard freestyle and 50-yard backstroke, and have a basic understanding of breaststroke and butterfly. Athletes in this group focus on solidifying their knowledge of all 4 strokes, having fun, and perfecting start and turn technique. We recommend athletes attend practice three times per week. Participation in local meets is required.

 

Moc 3

The Moc 3 group is for swimmers age 9 to 13 who can complete a legal 100-yard freestyle, 100-yard IM, and a legal 50 of all 4 strokes. Stroke fundamentals continue to be the main focus in this group; however, Moc 3 athletes will also begin to be challenged aerobically and given more opportunities to race and learn racing strategies. Training is structured to include ample opportunity for play and team building to coincide with increased competitiveness. We strongly recommend athletes attend at least three practices per week. Participation in local meets is required.

Training will be geared towards mastery of all strokes, preparation for aerobic training, and fun. Blue group athletes are expected to attend 3 practices a week. Participation in local and travel meets is required.


Gold

Gold group is for swimmers age 12 to 14 who can complete a legal 500-yard freestyle and 400-yard IM. The majority of athletes in this group have been on summer league and year-round teams in previous years. Most have times that are at or near the 12&U state cut level. Gold group athletes are expected to attend 4 practices a week and compete in local and travel meets throughout the year. Fun is still a key element of this group's training; however, athletes will be pushed to achieve greater fitness and required to set competitive goals. Participation in local and travel meets is required.
