This is the first level of swim team for swimmers to learn the technique of the four competitive swim strokes. Swimmers need to demonstrate a 25 freestyle with rhythmic breathing and ability to kick and float on their back. Instruction at this level will teach swimmers proper technique in the freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. Participation in swim meets is not required.
This level is for swimmers who can demonstrate legal technique in all four competitive strokes: butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle. Kicking, drills, and swim sets will help swimmers develop strength and help refine their competitive swim strokes. Swimmers will also learn competitive starts off blocks and proper turn techniques to prepare them for future competition. Participation in swim meets is not required.
This level is for swimmers who can demonstrate 100 yards of each of the swim strokes. Stroke and skill instruction are still the main emphasis with a focus on increasing endurance. Swimmers will learn how to complete specific training sets and how to read a pace clock. Participation in swim meets is encouraged, but not mandatory.
Bronze group is primarily for swimmers who can demonstrate a legal IM, a 50 freestyle under 45.99, and complete training sets over 200 yards. Pace clock and training knowledge will be introduced, and swimmers will learn how to complete training sets on specific repeats. Participation in swim meets is encouraged to members of this group.
Silver is primarily for most 13 & up swimmers who are developing their training skills or rising 11 & up swimmers. Swimmers must be able to perform 50 yards of all four strokes legally without stopping. This group focuses on further refinement of technique and racing skills. Swimmers receive enhanced swim training. Participation in swim meets is encouraged to members of this group.
