What group is my swimmer in?
Practice Group Overview
Parents are encouraged to initially determine a swimmers group based upon their age and ability level. Once the season is underway, decisions about moving a swimmer to another group are made by the coaching staff. Swimmers are asked to move to a new group based on readiness, maturity and swimming goals. Each coach will be responsible for helping swimmers improve and reach their goals. Every athlete's progress will be monitored and they will be advanced to the next group when they are fully prepared.
Jr. Dolphins NEW!!
Jr. Dolphins will be our youngest and most novice group of athletes. It will be comprised of first year Dolphins aged 4-6 who have very little to no experience in a swim team environment. The goal will be to teach the most basic swim skills to enable them to swim 2 lengths of the pool. All swimmers must be water-safe to join the team. (Water-safe: Your child can get from one side of a deep body of water safely to the other side without assistance from lane lines or floatation devices.)
The Red Group will be our youngest group of athletes. It will be comprised of mainly 5-7 year old swimmers who have very little to no experience with competitive swimming. The goal will be to teach the most basic competitive techniques.
A good qualifying test for white group readiness is for a swimmer to complete 4 lengths in less than 3 minutes.
The White group will be mostly 7-10 year olds who are proficient swimmers with a basic knowledge of competitive swimming. They should be able to swim all 4 strokes and easily complete lengths of freestyle.
A good qualifying test for blue group readiness is for a swimmer to complete 12 lengths in less than 5 minutes.
The Blue Group will be made up of our most experienced young swimmers (10-12 years old), up to the least experienced 12 year olds. This group will work on clock and set mastery, flip turns, race techniques and conditioning.
A good qualifying test for senior group readiness is for a swimmer to complete a 200 IM less than 4minutes.
The senior group will be made up of our most experienced and mature swimmers ages 13 and up. They will focus on conditioning, competitive technique, mental acuity and focus as well as dryland training.
