SENIOR USA Team training group

During the Senior practices swimmers will be broken into multiple groups for different training focuses on a day by day basis. Based on how many days your swimmer attends, the coaches will ensure your swimmer is placed where they will get the most out of their time spent at practice. For example, some athletes can handle a super tough work load on Monday that doesn’t affect their mid and end of the week training, but others require a more focused and lighter start to their week in order to maximize their quality of training. Coaches will apply this plan to each individual athlete every day based on their commitment level, events they want to swim, their needs in order to improve and the needs of their body. Each day will be different for each swimmer, thus personalizing their training to provide the best opportunity to reach their potential.

BLUE's college members train within the Senior group.

SENIOR has two training options available:

SENIOR IV - practices are offered 6x per week and your swimmer may attend four.

SENIOR VI - practices are offered 6x per week and your swimmer may attend all six.

Attendance at every practice is not mandatory. Each family can discuss their practice plan with their coach. BLUE asks that your expectations of your swimmer's progress be reasonably equal to the amount of time and effort they put in.
