GROUP PROMOTIONS

Being promoted from one group to another is a proud moment for swimmers, coaches, and parents.  We have structured the team so that each promotion is earned and each swimmer and parent will know precisely what is needed in order for that promotion to occur.  There is nothing more satisfying than to watch a swimmer after they have earned their promotion and the following are the criteria in order to be promoted from one group to the other: 

 

BLACK Promotion to GOLD

  1. 50% minimum attendance for 3 month period (roughly 3 practices per week)
  2. All four strokes done ‘legally’

 

GOLD/VARSITY Promotion to JUNIOR OLYMPIC

  1. 66% minimum attendance for 3 month period (roughly 4 practices per week)
  2. Attendance at 2 swim meets within 3 month period
  3. Must be at least 10 years old
  4. Must complete 5x100 on 1:35 Freestyle
  5. Must complete 5x100 on 1:50 IM

 

VARSITY/JUNIOR OLYMPIC Promotion to SENIOR DEVELOPMENT

  1. 75% minimum attendance for 3 month period (roughly 5 practices per week)
  2. Must be at least 13 years old
  3. Must complete 5x100 on 1:30 Freestyle
  4. Must complete 5x100 on 1:45 IM

 

SENIOR DEVELOPMENT to SENIOR

  1. 75% minimum attendance for 3 month period (roughly 5 practices per week)
  2. Attendance at ALL meets available to the swimmer
  3. Must be at least 13 years old
  4. Must complete 5x100 on 1:20 Freestyle
  5. Must complete 5x100 on 1:30 IM
  6. Must hold a minimum 2.5 GPA in school

 

Promotions from BLACK, GOLD, and VARSITY to the next group will happen as soon as the swimmer shows to have completed ALL of the criteria listed above.
 

Promotion from JUNIOR OLYMPIC, SENIOR DEVELOPMENT to SENIOR will be done typically in September, December, March, or June, according to the time of the swim season.
