SHARK TANK RACING SQUAD

SWIM STRONG. TRAIN HARD. RACE FAST. 

SHARK TANK RACING SQUAD

Shark Tank Racing Squad swimmers are selected based upon several characteristics that will enable both promising (advanced) and elite level swimmers to reach their highest potential/goals. Swimmers are invited and/or developed to join the team based upon a successful tryout, (the) number of spots available on the team, and consensus (vote) by the entire coaching staff (that is present/proctoring during a tryout) that a candidate(s) is ready to gainfully train/participate on the team.

At a minimum, all TANK candidate(s) must be proficient in five competitive strokes (frontcrawl, backcrawl, breaststroke, butterfly and under water dolphin kick (UDK)), and be able to complete at least a 4500+ yard swimming workout. At a minimum, all TANK candidate(s) must be proficient in five competitive strokes (frontcrawl, backcrawl, breaststroke, butterfly and under water dolphin kick (UDK)), and be able to complete at least a 4500+ yard swimming workout.

However, a tryout can be REQUESTED at anytime; if a parent/family feels that their swimmer(s) is prepared and/or is BOTH conditioned and trained enough to successfully manage the “TANK tryout experience”. It is not our objective to increase the team size, beyond a certain predetermined limit. Swimmers who are asked to join the team (after a successful tryout) will receive an invitation that ONLY is extended based on a consensus by the entire coaching staff.

SHARK TANK RACING SQUAD - SWIM TEAM PREP PROGRAM (new program)

Shark Tank Racing Squad’s Swim Team Prep Program (STP) is designed as a stepping stone program that prepares swimmers to become contributing and successful members of higher-level USA Swimming teams. Our Swim Team Prep Program teaches and/or develops stroke mechanics for all competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and underwater dolphin kick) and all competitive skills (i.e. turns, entries, breakouts).  STP is also a tool to increase conditioning, endurance, power and swimmer’s confidence.

Shark Tank Racing Squad’s Swim Team Prep Program can additional be used as a platform for high-school swim team preparation, summer swim league preparation, and/or simply as a mechanism to maintain a higher level of stroke mechanics training, and competitive skills development.

Shark Tank Racing Squad’s Swim Team Prep Program session(s) are taught/instructed in a ‘clinic-like’ fashion by the highly skilled and talented members of our (TANK) coaching staff. Each member of our coaching offers one or more specialization areas in competitive swimming.

TANK’s STP is administered as a monthly program that does not require an annual contractual commitment.  As a monthly program, STP offers the flexibility to adapt to specific schedules and the capability to obtain/maintain elite-level coaching and technical instruction.
