MSA’s Swim Group Levels

Swim Lessons
For three months out the year, MSA provides swim lessons for 3-12.   These children come 2 times a week for 30 minutes.  This group is taught safety and the basics of swimming freestyle and backstroke. 
This group is our pre-competitive group for children between the ages of 5-10. It requires a commitment of two practices a week for 45 minutes each day. The program is designed as a transitional introduction into the world of competitive swimming.  This group will concentrate on the fundamentals of competitive swimming (rules and regulations), technique and stroke development.  This group is encouraged to attend our home meets.
This is our intermediate program for swimmers between the ages of 8-13.  Focus is on continuation of stroke development with more advanced endurance training.  Practices are held two/three days a week for 60 to 90 minute training sessions.  Dryland training is introduced 1 day per week.  This group is required to attend our home meets.
This is our most rigorous age group program for swimmers between the ages of 12-18.  Gold is designed for those with an advanced and demonstrated commitment to the sport of swimming.  Requirements are proficient stroke technique with a sound work ethic and motivation.  This is a five day a week program with two hour training sessions.  Dryland will consist of 2-3 days per week. These swimmers and their families are required to make a year round commitment of time and energy to swimming.  This group is required to attend no less than 70% of the team meets.
*These are guidelines that we use for our different lanes. We know that children progress at different paces so there may be instances that swimmers are part of another group no matter their age. The groups are based mostly on the ability of the swimmer.
