Group Descriptions

Age Group 2 Swimmers swim twice a week for one hour. The first practice will take place on a weekday and the second practice will take place on Saturday evening. 

Age Group 3 practices three times a week.  Two with their Age Group 2 group and an additional Sunday practice.

The practices focus on stroke development as well as teaching good practice habits, and meet preparation.

Age Group goals include:

  • to prepare swimmers to be able to swim and compete in all strokes well,
  • to provide experience and training in stroke technique and beginning racing strategies which are necessary to successfully compete at this level,
  • to train with a balance between stroke technique and introductory training skills and processes,
  • to develop goal-setting skills that will challenge the swimmers and highlight their  accomplishments,
  • to make swimming an enjoyable lifelong sport.
