EVENT INFO

Practice Group Definitions as of 18 September 2017

  • Our program is based on building a long-term swimming career.
  • The team is divided into several different practice groups to promote continued interest and to offer increasing levels of challenge to each swimmer.
  • A swimmer's assigned group might change during a season as he or she develops.
  • Blue groups are high school and middle school age swimmers.
  • White groups are elementary school age swimmers. 
  • Groups assignments could change more than once in a season. Groups are based upon both skill and fitness. A swimmer moving to a higher fitness group is expected to maintain that fitness. We do not expect a “do it once and then they are in” performance at practice, we expect continued performance.
