CSA offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of CSA to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of their abilities. You must REGISTER with the TEAM before practicing!

PERSONAL GEAR REQUIRED: appropriate swim suit (swim shirts/wet suits are not allowed during practice. Boys should be in jammers or briefs, girls should wear a one piece practice suit),  goggles, and finsCap is required for those with long hair.

Practice is in the heated outdoor pool until it's just too cold (usually around Nov 1)

For all practices, be punctual, enter the pool area from the outside gate on the side of the pool and leave the pool deck better than you found it.

Bronze Group

Athletes in this group focus mainly on learning four legal competitive strokes, having fun, and developing start and turn technique.  Typically, Bronze has swimmers age 6-10, or very new, older swimmers.


Silver Group

From the Bronze group, athletes move into this group. Practices include more advanced training techniques, interval training, and some dryland workouts. Silver Group has swimmers age 9-12 and should have at least 3 legal strokes.


Gold Group

Minimum age for entry into this group is 11 (girls) or 12 (boys) and should have 4 legal strokes. Athletes entering the Gold group must display a strong desire to perform at the highest level. Training is geared towards individual talents, although a strong aerobic endurance factor is present. Athletes in the Gold group are directed towards making Southeastern and Sectional Time Standards.


High School Supplemental

Swimmers who are on a high school team during the USA swim season may participate in 3 practices/week during their respective practice group times (their choice). Other outside activities are not included in this option.  Participation in meets is encouraged but not required.
