FAST Training Groups - Tiger Stripes

Tiger Stripes swimmers are part of the Learn to Practice division. These swimmers build on the fundamentals introduced in Tiger Cubs. Tiger Stripes swimmers continue to focus on stroke mechanics with advanced drills and efficiency techniques. Basic interval training and new skills are also introduced. To be placed in Tiger Stripes, swimmers must have achieved an acceptable IM Ready (IMR) score. The IM Ready scores are based on 100 Free, 50 Back, 50 Breast, 50 Fly, and 100 IM (SC) or 200 IM (LC). Training sessions are offered 5 times per week and 80% attendance will afford the opportunity for continued improvement.
