White Team:

Practice Coaches:  Karen Miller / Mark Miller

 

The beginning level of the Swim Team where special attention is placed on building the young swimmer’s positive attitude towards themselves and the sport through emphasis on teamwork, individual skills, techniques, and sportsmanship.  The swimmers are introduced to goal setting as the season progresses.  Our goal with the white team is to see each young beginner athlete achieve his or her maximum capability.  The white team will attend a minimum of two practices per week with 3 practices available.  This allows the white team member to participate in other activities yet teaches them the responsibilities that come with being a team member.  As ability increases and interest and dedication grow, swimmers are encouraged and are eligible for the upper level programs.

 

Gold Team:

Practice Coaches:  Karen Miller / Mark Miller / Chad McClain / Jim Williams

 

The intermediate level program is designed for those swimmers who, through their efforts, desire more challenge and an increasing level of competition.  Time and financial commitments will be required in excess of the white team.  The gold team members are required to attend a minimum of 3 water workouts per week with 4 practices available.  The gold team may also engage in light weight lifting and other strength building and endurance increasing activities.  Additional time is spent on correlating the mental and physical aspects of swimming and goal setting is introduced early in the season.  Swimmers are encouraged to extend themselves and reach far for their goals.

Silver & Black Teams:

Practice Coaches: Mary Jannides / Chad McClain / Lee Huskey / Jim Williams

 

The most advanced and intensely dedicated swimmers will comprise the Silver and Black teams. These teams have similar training regimens, but are separated primarily by age.  Black team is reserved for 13 & Over, and the exceptional 12 year old that has reached ZONE qualifications.  This group will have high standards of excellence necessary for membership. 3 water workouts per week are expected with 4 practices available.  Additionally, emphasis may be placed on weight training, strength and endurance programs, and running in the pre-season.  Members of these teams will budget their time so as to participate in many meets while still meeting all classroom requirements.  Goal setting is introduced on opening night and members will receive mental training on competitive sports throughout the entire season.  Team members are taught correlation between practice effort and race performance, and will be pushed at workouts.  Team members want to excel and reach their absolute maximum performance, and have made the decision to concentrate their major time and effort to achieve their goals in swimming.
