Senior II

 

The Senior II group is most advanced training group within the Northwest Arkansas Aquatics program. Swimmers in this group are striving to be as successful as they can be and compete at the highest level in the sport whether that be locally, regionally, or nationally. The majority of the swimmers in this group are working to persue swimming at the collegiate level.

The focus of the Senior II group is to challenge these swimmers to be the best that they can be in and out of the pool on a daily basis. They will learn skills that they will be able to apply to their swimming at this current time as well as in college and in life.

 

The Dryland for the Senior II group will be the most intense in the entire NWAA program. The in-water training will be designed to help these swimmers perform as well as they can in the given season as well as continue to develop in their careers if they chose to further their swimming at the college level.

 

Swimmers in the Senior II group will range in ages of 15-18. It is preferred that swimmers will be in their sophomore year of HS and older; however, if there is a specific case where a swimmer is only able to be challenged regularly, a discussion will take place within the staff, swimmer, and parents to determine if it is developmentally appropriate for that individual to be in this group.
