Competitive

The Competitive program is designed for swimmers who have developed strong swimming skills and wish to regularly compete and have demonstrated a willingness to commit to a more rigorous training program. Swimmers are expected to regularly attend practices, have a positive attitude, be punctual and attend competitive meets. 

There are six levels within this program.  Each swimmer is placed in the appropriate level based not only on ability but also with some consideration for the swimmer’s age. The swimmers are expected to maintain specific performance criteria as established by the Head Coach to stay in their level. 

Intermediate 1 and Intermediate 2

Swimmers in these levels/groups have achieved specific time standards at competitive meets, as well as performance standards during regular practice sessions. Swimmers may be up to 13 years of age.  Practices range from 1 1/2 to 2 hours in length, 5-6 times a week. Swimmers in Intermediate 2 swim from September to June, while swimmers in Intermediate 1 swim from September to July.

Senior 3 and Senior 4
