The Novice Group


5 to 10 Years Old



Competitive swimming "lessons" geared toward preparing the swimmer for longer and more demanding practice sessions.   All four (Free, Back, Breast & Fly) stroke techniques and skill acquisition are the primary focuses.  Swimmers develop strokes and techniques through drills, games, and demonstrations.  The technique/training ratio for the Novice Group is 90 % technique to 10% training.  Novice swimmers are promoted to Age Group on an ongoing individual basis.
Novice swimmers are encouraged to participate in competitions at the coaching staff’s recommendation. Typically, these competitions are one-day meets with swimmers of similar levels from other teams in the area.

Novice swimmers are coached by Sarah Boyette
