Coach – Jason Davis
The Sharks group is for swimmers 12 & Under who are committed to becoming successful age group athletes. These swimmers have competed at swim meets and working toward Blue & Invite time standards. A great emphasis will be taken on technique, as well as the basics of proper stroke development. In addition to being proficient in all 4 strokes, swimmers wishing to be in the Sharks Group must meet the following criteria:
- Must be able to accurately read a pace clock
- Meet the minimum 4 meet expectation per season
- Show DISCIPLINE (doing what you need to do, when you need to do it, the way it needs to get done), a Positive Attitude, Commitment, Pride in Performance, and a TEAM mindset.
- 10 x 50's Freestyle kick on 1:15
Practices are one and a half hour long. There will be 6 practices a week offered and 50% (3) attendance is the minimum required, with 4-5x a week recommended. In addition to attending practice, Shark level athletes are recommended to attend competitions the swimmer and coach determine are best for the athlete. If an athlete is not able to attend an agreed upon meet, the coach must be notified ahead of time and the parent(s)/guardian(s) should decline the meet in our online TeamUnify system . If a swimmer consistently is not able to meet the attendance requirement, a meeting between the coach, swimmer and parents may be required.
