Gold Team

About the Group:



At the Gold level, swimmers may still be exploring their interests, but as they age they are starting to shorten the list of interests so that pursuit of goals comes into focus. Children will work with their coach to put their vision into practice. It is important to stress here that at this age of development their bodies are changing THEREFORE technique is still highly stressed at this stage. Swimmers will also begin to experience more difficult practices (compared to Silver) in order to stress and refine their technique.
