Fitness Prep (FP) (ages 12+)

About the group

This group is for those wanting to improve their swim skills, both stroke and endurance in order to participate in other water type activities, such as water polo or just to stay in shape.

Swimming training is an effective way for land-based athletes to incorporate workouts that are gentle on joints and tough on the cardiovascular system. Swimming also works an athlete's entire body, exposes their strength to bodyweight ratio, and increa ses their range of motion. The sport of swimming isn’t for everyone, but a little swim training can help all athletes. 

This is a non-competitive group and  swimmers do not participate in swim meets although they have the option to swim in our team hosted meet in October. All swimmers should have knowledge of freestyle and backstroke. Swimmers who have already achieved membership on their high school team do not need to try-out to join this group. Swimmers new to competitive swimming should attend one practice as a try-out before registering for the group. This group has no attendance requirement although swimmers are encouraged to attend all practices.  Swimmers in FP workout with Senior 1 group.  The main difference between FP and Senior 1 is that FP does not participate in swim meets nor do they have service hours.
