GOLD

Lead Coach: Coach Jenna Johnson ([email protected])

The Gold Group (Gold) is designed for more competitive 12-and-under swimmers. Swimmers in Gold remain focused on technique of all four strokes with an addition of Individual Medley (IM) training. Swimmers will work on underwater kicking (subkicks), racing, and clock reading. Swimmers will also learn to read the clock and understand sets in their written form. Gold swimmers will complete dryland workouts and stretching. All Gold swimmers will be encouraged to attend at least 3 meets during both the short course season and the long course season.
