The Bronze group is a more advanced introduction into the world of competitive swimming. An emphasis will be placed on developing a love for the sport of swimming in a fun and educational atmosphere. Developing skills in all four strokes and IM will be a primary focus. Stroke technique, kicking, starts and turns will be the Bronze groups seasonal development plan.
Swimmers in this group should be able to have a working knowledge and a basic skill set in all four competitive strokes.
The Bronze Group is offered to swimmers from the ages 6-10 years old.
The Bronze Group will be offered at both our Crozet YMCA location and our Brooks YMCA location.
