SWIM GROUPS

This season we will have multiple swim groups. Please see the descriptions below.

Elite

This group will be for swimmers who are interested in a more challenging workout and longer workout times. The Elite workouts will provide club quality coaching and workouts but not require club level commitment.  Eligibility Requirements: Admission to this team is dependent on Coach Kate's discretion. Please email her at [email protected]. If you sign-up for the wrong level for your child there is no guarantee we can move them to another workout group.

Novice

The NOVICE group is for swimmers new to swim team. Swimmers in Novice are usually 5-10 years old. In order to be on NOVICE the swimmer must be able to swim a length of Freestyle and Backstroke and have familiarity with Breaststoke and Butterfly. These swimmers will only have three practices a week.

Blue & Green

The BLUE & GREEN groups are the same level and only indicate your practice time slot. These groups are intended for swimmers who wish to continue to improve their strokes, build their endurance and swim year round.

PRACTICE TIMES

Practice will be held Monday - Friday for all swimmers except Novice. Practice sessions will be from 3:30pm - 4:30pm (Blue) and 4:30pm- 5:30pm (Green).  Elite will practice Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays 4:00pm-5:30pm and Tuesdays & Thursdays 4:00-5:00pm in the North Pool.
