Bronze – Ages 12 & Under
This group is for swimmers looking to jump into competitive swimming or transition from learn to swim into a more advanced program. Swimmers must be willing to commit to 3 days of practice a week and should be looking to gain stroke technique skills, fundamental drills of the four competitive strokes – Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly, dryland training skills, and other skills necessary to swim competitively. Swimmers must demonstrate a high level of water comfort forming correct practice habits. To join this group, swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards in any manner and be comfortable in deep water as well as in a group setting away from parents. Swimmers will learn basic floating, kicking, body balance and breathing, creating a base from which they can learn to train. Swimmers will learn competitive readiness, practice discipline, as well as how to have fun in the water. This group may attend a few optional swim meets throughout the season for those interested in competing.
Due to our meet schedule and the University schedule, there will be weekends we will be unable to hold practices. A tentative list of dates that there WILL be bronze group practices will be posted soon:
