JUNIOR

Lead Coach: Coach Kayla Griffin ([email protected])

The Junior Group is a more intense level of age group swimming. This level involves an increase in endurance training with a continued focus on technique. Junior swimmers will focus on interval training as well as racing at a higher level. Swimmers will be introduced to more intensive dryland techniques and speed and agility work on land.

In order to move up to the Junior Group, the swimmer must have/be:

  • A minimum of 10 years old.
  • Moving at the start of either short course or the start of long course season.

  • Can perform 5 x 100 free @ 1:45 (SCM); 3 x 100 kick @ 2:00 (SCM); 1 x 200 IM under 3:00 (SCM).
