Iowa Flyers Swim Club


Pre-Elite

Practice days: Monday - Friday and Saturday
 
Practice Objectives and Standards: The suggested age for this group is 9-12 years of age, who have achieved a 9-10 A standard or an 11-12 BB standard (See National Age Group Motivational Times) for their respective age groups in an event 100 yds or greater.  In this group, we ask for an increased level of commitment, which is an average of 5 practices per week.  The swimmer will work on proper technique and will begin to build endurance at a higher rate during training.  Coaches will help each swimmer set goal times appropriate to his or her current skill level, with personal improvement as the primary focus.  Completion in meets at the highest level of qualification is expected.   Please refer to the Team Calendar on our main page for practice times and locations.
 
Advancement: In addition to the coach's discretion, swimmers must be committed to attending 6-8 practices per week.  Furthermore, swimmers are required to have at least one ISI Q time in and event 200 yds/m or greater for the 13-14 age group.
