Silver Cavs Group


Group Description

The Silver Cavs group is a group of 8 to 11-year-old swimmers that will focus on developing technique and endurance with all four strokes. This group is a less competitive version of the Silver Group, with fewer practices offered and an 8-month commitment vs the 11-month commitment of the Silver Group.  Developing a love and passion for the sport of swimming in a fun and competitive setting will be a primary focus. An emphasis will be placed on technique, introduction to endurance and interval training sets, flip turns, starts, kicking, and having FUN.
