Junior Training Group

About the Group:



At the Junior 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. Athletes 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.
