FAST Training Groups - Tiger Pride

 

FAST 11-14 Fall Parent Meeting Handout

Our Tiger Pride swimmers are the 11-14 year olds that have met minimum IMXtreme (IMX) scores. This is the swimmer's final step in age group swimming, as they are part of the Train to Compete division. These swimmers are continuing to refine all aspects of their swimming, while learning how their decisions and behavior affect their performance in the pool. Practices are offered 7-8 times per week and 95% practice attendance will afford the opportunity for continued improvement.

Please come prepared for dry-land daily as some days schedules will be forced to change due to gym and dry-land space availability.

Dryland training will revolve around a progressive cycle of muscular and cardiovascular endurance using body weight, plyo-metric, and flexibility training. 

Water training will continue with the advancement in technical skills along with increased levels of training through out the year with weekly test sets. Tiger Pride's workouts will be designed to provide a continued progression for the athlete within the season as well as progression each year and provide the necessary skills and training level to advance into the Senior Level groups as they continue through the program.  Each day that there is an interval based training session swimmers will be divided into groups determined by each athletes test set results and previous interval training ability.
