Dolphin & Bronze

The Dolphin and Bronze swimmers are primarily elementary school aged swimmers.

  • The Dolphin group practices 3 days per week and is focused on learning the fundamentals – each of the 4 competitive strokes, starts and turns. While practices are not mandatory swimmers are encouraged to attend 3 practice each week.
  • The Bronze group practices 5 days per week. The Bronze group builds on the fundamentals learned in the Dolphin group. The volume of swimming in the Bronze group increases from the Dolphin group. While practices are not mandatory swimmers are encouraged to attend 4-5 practices a week.

 

Silver

Silver group swimmers are middle school aged – 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. There are three options for swimmers within the Silver group; Silver 1, Silver 2, Silver 3. Where you fit on the 1, 2, or 3 spectrum depends on your goals and commitment level. There is a place for everyone.

  • Silver 1 is for swimmers that have made the decision that swimming is very important in their life and that they want to try to achieve at the highest level. Silver 1 includes regular AM workouts. In a normal week there are 8 practices for the Silver 1 group. High caliber meet attendance requirements for this group are higher than for Silver 2 and Silver 3.
  • Silver 2 is the normal Silver group from the last few years. 6 practices per week. Most people from the Silver group last year fit into this group.
  • Silver 3 is for middle school aged swimmers that want to swim, stay in shape, and be a part of a team, but don’t want the 6 or 8 practices per week schedule of Silver 1 / Silver 2 groups. Silver 3 practices are Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Silver 3 swimmers are only eligible to swim home meets.
