NSC Competitive Team - "Exploring the Sport of Swimming"

NSC swimmers Whitney Brown, Lilly King, Christie Jensen, and Olivia Treski in 2015 held the National Record in the Female 200m Medley Relay for 16 - 18 year olds.

Sea Serpents Race

Sea Serpents Race is for young athletes who are interested in taking the next step towards competitive swimming. In this group, swimmers work on technique for all four competitive strokes. NSC believes that having an early introduction to technique will greatly aid our young athletes as they continue swimming. 

Group Goals

It is both the staff and swimmer’s mission to achieve the following in this group:

  • Sets the example to other teammates for good listening skills
  • Respects his/her coaches and teammates at all times
  • Remembers to have FUN at all times!

Training Focus and Practice Duration

Swimmers in this group have the opportunity to practice four days a week. The first 10 minutes is spent outside of the water performing movements which develop the athletes' coordination and mobility. The last 50 minutes of practice will be in the water working on developing proper technique and learning fundamental skills. At the end of practice, if time allows, the group will play a fun game that will help reinforce the skills learned in practice. The days and practice times for Sea Serpants Race can be found in the link below:
