Silver Medal Club Junior Select
 
Junior Select is Riptide's top age group practice group. Entry to this group is determined by Head Coach Mike Parratto. This group is for championship level age group swimmers ages 9-12. Junior Select swimmers will have a significant focus on building a solid technical background involving all four strokes, underwaters, starts, turns and finishes. The coaches will provide the tools and background the swimmers will need to one day move on to our top Senior level training groups (Senior 2 and Senior Elite).
 
Practices are offered 6X/week for 90 minutes with a 15 minute daily dryland component included in that block of time. Swimmers are expected to attend 3-5 practices per week depending on their age. Younger swimmers (9-10) should attend a max of 4 practices per week. Swimmers turning 13 should plan to attend 5-6 practices per week in preparation for their next step (Senior 2 or Senior Elite).

All swimmers are USA Swimming registered athletes and are required to participate in selected USA Swimming sanctioned meets.

Equipment needed: Long blade fins, water bottle (no glass), kick board, pull buoy, snorkel, training suits, goggles, cap and mesh bag. Riptide Team Gear. (Riptide suit, cap and team t-shirt).
