The Novice Group
5 to 10 Years Old
Competitive swimming "lessons" geared toward preparing the swimmer for longer and more demanding practice sessions. All four (Free, Back, Breast & Fly) stroke techniques and skill acquisition are the primary focuses. Swimmers develop strokes and techniques through drills, games, and demonstrations. The technique/training ratio for the Novice Group is 90 % technique to 10% training. Novice swimmers are promoted to Age Group on an ongoing individual basis.
Novice swimmers are encouraged to participate in competitions at the coaching staff’s recommendation. Typically, these competitions are one-day meets with swimmers of similar levels from other teams in the area.
Novice swimmers are coached by Savannah Antonetz
