White Group
       

Coaches


Description

  • Our White Group is an introduction to the world of year round swimming.  Swimmers are legal in all four strokes, but need more developmental instruction.
  • Our focus during each practice is on building a strong technique base for all four competitive strokes; learning that IM mindset and not just working hard on "our favorite stroke."
  • Swimmers will learn technique drills to help with balance, posture, coordination, and distance per stroke
  • Our biggest objective is to help swimmers develop quality practice skills and habits that will increase short-term growth, but more importantly, enhance long-term success as they advance through our training groups
  • We want to provide a positive learning environment where swimmers learn the value of hard work and the importance of TEAMmates.
