The Falls Aquatic Swim Team offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Falls Aquatic Swim Team to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities.
Our Team has 4 primary swim groups and a Preteam Swim group.
Bronze 1 Group
This group is our usual starting place for most who are new to the sport. The Bronze Group is composed mainly of swimmers from 7-10 years of age, but there may be some variance to this. Bronze 1 swimmers swim 3 days a week for 1 hour per day. The emphasis here is on swimmer development and learning the proper technique to the 4 competitive swim strokes.
Bronze 2 Group
This group is for our new/ but ready for more of a challenge group of swimmers. The Bronze 2 Group is composed mainly of swimmers under 12 years of age who aren't quite ready for swiming 5 days per week, but need more than just 1 hour/3 days. Bronze 2 swimmers swim for 6 hours per week, days chosen by the swimmers. The emphasis here is on swimmer development and refinement of the proper technique to the 4 competitive swim strokes.
Our Silver Group is composed of more experienced swimmers, those ready to put in more practice time and have become proficient at all the competitive strokes. Swimmers in this group generally range in age from 9-13 years old. The silver group practices 5 days a week for 2 hours per day, although not all Silver swimmers practice the full 10 hours each week. The level of participation varies with the individual swimmers.
The Gold Group is our most advanced swimmers. Most all are High School aged swimmers and many spend part of the Short Course season swimming on their High School Team. The Gold group practices up to 10 sessions per week, mornings and afternoon sessions are available for them. As with the Silver Group, actual levels of participation are up to the individual swimmer.
