GATORS practice groups

The Irondequoit Gators Swim Club offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Irondequoit Gators Swim Club to offer age/ability specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual to reach their potential.

Practice Groups are going to be aligned with the Webster's Practice Groups to make our practices as cohesive and productive as possible.  Below are approximate comparisons to the Webster Groups.

All swimmers will be evaluated by the coaches based on their ability placed in the correct group


We offer 4 levels of swimming:

Green "Beginner" Group=BRONZE GROUP

This is a beginner level for younger swimmers. The swimmer must be able to swim one lap of the pool unassisted.  All four competitive strokes will be introduced and developed as well as a general introduction to aerobic base training.

Orange "Intermediate" Group=BRONZE OR SILVER GROUP

​This is a step above the Green level for swimmers who are "Race" ready.  Swimmers can swim all 4 strokes but are still building the endurance required for Yellow group.  Stroke development and conditioning are emphasized.

 Yellow "Advanced" Group= SLIVER GROUP

This group will build upon the foundation developed in the Green Group with continued development of the four competitive strokes as well as an introduction to more intense level of training leading towards a more competitive approach to meets.  This group will help prepare athletes for our Black Group.

 Black "Elite" Group= GOLD GROUP

This training group is primarily made up of senior level swimmers who have "A" level times or the Head Coach's approval.
