Fitness/Introductory Track

Group Five

Silver

Group Six

GOLD (Monday–Friday PM Workouts)

This group is designed for two types of swimmers.  First, it is designed for the swimmer who is not quite ready for Group 5, but wants to train seriously with the plan of moving on to those groups.  Second, it provides an opportunity for the long-time swimmer, with multi-interests in other activities, to remain in a structured swimming environment.

 

Group Five (12/older): (Daily AM & PM + Saturday) TBA

The Senior Team is for the swimmers looking to develop a training background for Group Six or competitive high school level swimming. Careful attention is still given to technique, but an equal emphasis is placed on learning how to train. Stretching and dry land exercises are included, as well as routine mental and physical challenges. Regular attendance is required at FIVE workouts per week, as is participation in meets.

 

Group Six (13/older): (Daily AM & PM + Saturday) TBA

The Senior Team is for the swimmers with goals of college swimming or national level qualifying.  Members of this group have selected swimming as their primary activity for at least three training quarters of the year. Members of this group have the ability to do double workouts during the school year, and the attendance to handle peak training loads.  Swimmers should have SNR level standards and are required to attend a minimum of SEVEN workouts a week. 

Hopefully this chart will help everyone figure out the new group structure and where you will fit.
