  • Emphasis is on developing the techniques for all four competitive strokes. Practices will focus on distances that are competed at USAS 12 & Under club level. 

  • The swimmer must be able to listen and learn in a group environment.

  • White Caps swimmers showing the ability and desire to advance to the Tidal Wave or Cyclone Group must demonstrate technical proficiency in all four strokes, an understanding of intervals and practice etiquette, and agree to the expectations unique to each training group.
