Age Group Yellow

Overview:

Swimmers in Age Group Yellow are generally 9 to 12 years old. Proper stroke technique is still the training emphasis along with the reinforcement of proper practice habits. After the beginning portion of the season, there is an increased focus on training and conditioning. Swimmers at this level are expected to train and compete in each stroke and should be focused on becoming as well-rounded a swimmer as possible.

Attendance Expectations:

Age Group Yellow practices 4 times each week for 2 hours, which includes 30 minutes of dryland prior to getting in the water to swim. It is recommended that Age Group Yellow swimmers attend all offered practices. An 80% overall practice attendance is the goal for this group. Swimmers are expected to participate in meets, as selected by the coaches, every four to six weeks. The group begins in September and runs through the end of July or early August.

Required Equipment:

  • Mesh Equipment Bag
  • Fins – Short
  • Kickboard (junior size recommended)
  • Pull Buoy (junior size recommended)
