Elite Group Over View

The Elite Group are our high school age swimmers (ages 15-18) who are working to achieve Sectional and Junior National time standards. Elite group swimmers are required to have 3+ Senior Zones cuts and should be able to swim 10 x 100s Freestyle on 1:15, 6 x 200 IMs on 3:00, and 10 x 100s Kick on 1:40. The Elite Group will emphasize improvements on stroke technique, strength, and racing skills. As the young leaders of our club, Elite swimmers are held to the highest standards on our team values with an emphasis on leadership. These swimmers will strive to become students of all aspects of the sport.
