Novice Group -- The Novice group is an entry-level group of beginning 6 to 8 year olds who are new to competitive swimming and/or swimmers looking to continue to develop sound fundamentals of all four strokes including competitive starts and turns.  Novice group swimmers are encouraged to participate in competitions throughout the year.  Novice group swimmers practice 2 days per week for 1 hour.

Age Group -- Age Group transitions swimmers from introductory competitive swimmers to more experienced competitive swimmers.  Age Group swimmers are typically 8-12 years old with a good understanding of all four competitive strokes.  Age Group swimmers practice 3 times per week for 1 and 1/2 hours.

Advanced Age Group -- The Advanced Age Group consists of highly developed swimmers 11 years old and up looking to advance in the training aspects of swimming and continue to improve overall times. Advanced Age Group practice is offered 5 times per week for 1 and 1/2 hours. This program is intended for the age group swimmers who have goals of pursuing their swimming career as far as possible.

Senior Group -- Once swimmers are promoted as far as the Senior program, they must train more and better than they did when they were younger to continue to improve  (swim faster). Senior group requires a commitment to training.  Regular attendance is expected.  Practice is offered 5-6 days per week.

Non-Competitive/Conditioning-Only Programs
The Non-Competitive/Conditioning-Only Programs are comprised of swimmers looking for a short-term conditioning program for either some fun and exercise or to prepare for a high school swimming or summer league swimming season through stroke development and fitness improvement.  Non-Competitive programs are conditioning programs only.  Swimmers do not compete in swim meets. Practices are canceled on days of swim meets. There are Non-Competitive/Conditioning-Only programs for swimmers ages 12 & Under and ages 13 & Over. Non-Competitive/Conditioning-Only Programs run approximately 10-weeks each and are offered throughout the year-round season.
