Group Information

Yellow 1 and Yellow 2

Ages: 5th and 6th grade

Prerequisites: Must be able to complete all requirements of stroke school or advance from White Groups

The focus of this group is to refine and continue to develop the swimmer’s skills. Conditioning and endurance training are also introduced. As with Stroke School, White, Yellow, and Age Groups, all of the swimmer’s other activities, such as soccer, baseball, dance, etc. are encouraged. Swimmers generally compete in Sandpiper hosted inter-squad and sanctioned invitational meets and are encouraged to attend at least 3-5 of the 1- 1 1/2 hour practices offered each week. More experienced swimmers generally compete in local "BRW" level swim meets and possible travel out side of the state. Skills are still being developed to advance to the next level.  Advancement would be the next level of Yellow, Age Group, or Senior Development groups.
