This is our entry-level group. Swim Fit athletes must work toward having four legal strokes, legal turns & underwaters, learn how to read a pace clock, and be between the ages of 11 - 18 yrs. old. Swim Fit athletes may compete in two meets per year while holding a USA FLEX membership. Once a Swim Fitter moves up to the competition team, they will upgrade their USA Swimming membership and will be able to compete in an unlimited number of competitions throughout the year.

This weekly microcycle is crucial to the athletes' development. Athletes in this group train for the entire National Order of Events. Competition at swim meets is expected in this group.

The Masters Group is for anyone 18 years of age or older that would like to swim for fun, fitness, triathlon training, competitive swimming, open water training, or to rehab an injury. Practices are organized, actively run by a coach, and run in a group setting. Practices are written following a weekly microcycle of all energy systems and strokes (Aerobic, IM, Recovery, Prime Stroke, Racing, and Threshold). This group is open to swimmers of ALL abilities. However, this is not a “Learn to Swim” program, basic swimming skills are necessary.
