Bronze: Age Group 1
In this swim team program, for ages 8 to 12 years, swimmers will begin their journey as a competitive swimmer by focusing on the fundamentals while having fun. Participants will learn what it takes to be a competitive swimmer both in and out of the water including goal setting, nutrition, and training. In this group, the emphasis is on form rather than yardage. Swimmers will be encouraged to swim in meets on a semi-regular basis to give them an opportunity to use, evaluate, and improve their skills. Requirements: Swimmers should be able to swim the following practice sets legally: 4x50 freestyle, 4x50 backstroke, 4x50 breaststroke, 4x50 butterfly, 4x50 kick, and 4x100 individual medley.
