Pre-Senior

Overview:

The Pre-Senior group is set up as the bridge between Age Group and Senior level swimming. Pre-Senior swimmers will notice that their practices are now more challenging both in terms of volume and intensity; stroke technique will continue to be a priority at this level as well. In addition to greater expectations in the pool, Pre-Senior swimmers are expected to learn effective communication skills, display self-discipline and focus in practice, and begin to take ownership over their swimming careers. Now that basic exercises have been learned, dryland training becomes intensified as well. This group runs year-round (late-August through early-August).

Attendance Expectations:

As swimmers progress from Age Group to Senior level swimming, increased levels of commitment and participation are vital to a swimmer continued progress in this sport. An 80% overall practice attendance is the goal for this group. Swimmers in this group are offered five two-hour and fifteen minute practices each week. Swimmers in this group are expected to participate in meets, as selected by the coach, approximately every four to six weeks. 

Required Equipment:

  • Mesh Equipment Bag
  • Fins
  • Kickboard
  • Pull Buoy (junior size recommended)
  • Paddles (size recommended by coach)
