Fairfax Foxes Swimming

Gold

Dynamic, competitive and versatile Foxes, considered "Pre-Senior" Group


 

GOLD Foxes will notice that their practices are now more challenging both in volume and intensity. Stroke technique will continue to be a priority at this level with a greater expectation on practice discipline.  This “pre-senior” group is expected to learn effective communication skills and begin taking stronger ownership over their swimming careers. Competition at swim meets is expected with an emphasis on goal-setting, focus and attention to detail.  The GOLD swimmers are primarily 7th through 10th graders and typically train up to 4-5 times per week, including dryland. (Currently the Gold Group is closed for registration.)
