Age Group

This training group is designed to introduce and advance swimmers in year-round swimming. Correct stroke mechanics are always emphasized, and as stroke skills improve swimmers are challenged with more difficult training sets. Swimmers are encouraged to enjoy their swimming and to begin to focus more on the competitive aspect of the sport. Swimmers in this group should compete in “BB” level swim meets. Swimmers in this level are generally age 9-12-years-old.

Swimmers are encouraged to attend a minimum of 3-4 practice out of the 5 offered per week.
