Junior Developmental

The Junior Developmental program is designed for swimmers 12 & under to continue the proper acquisition of the skills needed to be a competent competitive swimmer. Racing starts, turns and IM transitions are introduced at this stage. The four competitive strokes will continue to be refined. In addition to acquiring and refining skills, the swimmers in this group will also receive level-appropriate endurance and sprint training throughout the course of each season. 

The Junior Developmental program practices three days a week for one hour and one combined dryland training session with the Jr Intermediate group on Fridays. The swimmers in this group will have the opportunity to compete in local and statewide swim meets.

Junior Development Group Criteria 

Athletes typically move into this group from our Pre-Team or 8 & Under Group. Swimmers must be able to complete the ’Goals of the Pre-Team or 8 & Under Group’ to move into the Junior Developmental group.

Practice is offered three days per week. Athletes may be invited by their coach to swim with the Jr Intermediate Group practice if they can keep up and have perfect attendance for the week.

There is no attendance requirement for this group, but athletes will improve more quickly, and make more friends(which will make them want to come more!), the more often they attend practice.

  • Swim 3 x 100 IM legally
  • Swim 4 x 50 of each stroke or 200 IM legally

  • Perform track start and backstroke start effectively
  • Athlete is motivated to listen to coaches and try to improve
  • Courteous to other swimmers in pool
  • Athletes know their attitude affects how they swim and how others around them swim
  • Develop consistent practice attendance
