Training Levels

H2Swift Boerne, reflecting team growth, will have new training levels in 2019. These training levels assure a productive practice for everyone in the pool. Level placement is accessed at tryouts. Please review the new training levels. Before registering you must receive a training level assignment by a coach. Your registration will not be confirmed until a tryout and assignment have been successfully completed. 

  • Level 1 -The swimmer must be able to swim, with confidence, from one side of the pool to the other (25 meters). It does not have to be Olympic-perfect, but they need to show swimming with their face in the water and floating on their stomach and back.
  • Level 2 - This swimmer gets across the pool breathing to their side for two lengths of the pool (50 meters). This swimmer does not have to have an Olympic backstroke but must demonstrate they know the importance of keeping their eyes, belly button, and toes near the top of the water. 
  • Level 3 - This swimmer is ready to compete in Freestyle, Backstroke and demonstrates a basic understanding of Butterfly arms and legs. This swimmer is happy swimming four lengths of the pool (100 meters) and showing off their skills. 
  • Level 4 - This swimmer is comfortable with their Freestyle, Backstroke, and practices flip turns. They keep working on their Butterfly and are ready to learn the basics of the very-demanding Breaststroke. The Breaststroke does not have to be perfect but the swimmer must demonstrate that they are improving on their technique during the first month of training. This swimmer, achieving the highest rank of the H2Swift team, must comfortably swim eight lengths of the pool (200 meters).

*Coaches have the final say in which training group a swimmer has the best chance for growth.   

*If you have multiple children: they may not all be in the same level. There will be NO mixing of training groups. Please be sure to go over your schedule and the training times to assure a successful season. 

If you have questions about the team, level placement, practices, meets, or about your swimmer's progress please contact the H2Swift head coach, Blaine Rucker by emailing [email protected]
