  • Age range in this group is 9-13 years-old.

  • Cyclone swimmers must show proficiency in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly, have the ability to perform all starts and turns for each stroke, as well as, an understanding of intervals.    

  • Emphasis on technical proficiency over achievement, and quality training over quantity.

  • Development of interval training and race strategy, with an introduction to endurance training.
