Silver Group

Silver Group consists of our young swimmers (ages 7-12) who are looking to start swimming competitively. Silver Group is our introduction to competitive swimming. We will be teaching swimmers racing skills (starts, turns, etc.) and continuing their stroke technique development, while at the same time increasing yardage with a focus on kicking. Swimmers will develop a deeper understanding of teamwork, and learn the value of dedication and responsibility all while still being able to have fun!
