2019-2020 Fall/Winter Training Group Expectations/Descriptions

Links to YMCA Membership & Financial Aid Information

The Holyoke YMCA Vikings offer training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of HYV to offer age and ability specific training for all of our athletes, geared towards challenging each individual to reach their full potential. We ask parents trust the coaching staff in placing their kids in the correct groups. Our group descriptions are brief, and there will be exceptions since every kid is different. Group placement is a coaching decision, and it is not a statement on the long term success of your Viking! Factors that go into the decision making process:

  • Actual Age
  • Physical Age
  • Mental Age (Maturity Level)
  • Attendance
  • Work Ethic
  • Training Ability
  • Achievement

Thank you for your cooperation,

HYV Coaching Staff
