Super Squad


Swimmers in this group have the opportunity to practice four times per week for one hour with an additional fifteen minutes devoted to basic stretching for increased flexibility and range of motion.  Practice attendance is not required for this group but it is recommended that swimmers attend at least two out of the four practices each week.  Super Squad swimmers will continue to learn the proper stroke technique of all four competitive strokes, streamlines, racing starts and turns, how to use the pace clock and the rules for competition.  Swimmers will compete in Meets as designated by the 12/Under Meet Schedule, including USA Swimming Invitationals, CT YMCA State Championship Meet, CT Regionals and CT Age Groups for those who qualify.  Swimmers new to the program must be evaluated by a member of the coaching staff prior to enrollment.
