Session structure for our Seasonal Groups

  • White Group - This group is for swimmers with little or no competitive swimming experience.  This group is the introductory level of Highlander Aquatics.  The goal of the group is to emphasize stroke development and body awareness for each of the four competitive strokes.  Swimmers will develop outstanding freestyle and backstroke skills through numerous drills and technique work. They also learn streamlines and flat dives. Breaststroke and butterfly are also introduced. Swimmers have the option to participate in local developmental meets that are offered throughout the season.  Swimmers must in the 1st grade or older and able to swim 25 yards of freestyle and backstroke. White group swimmers practice for 45 minutes. 
     
  • Green Group - Swimmers either move to this group from the White group by the recommendation of our coaching staff or can join into this group after a stroke/practice evaluation.  In this group, the proper techniques of all four competitive strokes will be reinforced.  They will also be instructed on racing procedures such as starts, turns and the rules and regulations involved in competitive swimming.  As a part of this instruction, interval training will be introduced and used for the purpose of repetition of an acquired skill as well as for conditioning.  They participate in B-C type meets and interval training but stroke technique remains the emphasis.  Swimmers perform some limited dryland training, working on coordination and core strength training. Swimmers have the option of USA sanctioned meets and/or local developmental meets that are offered throughout the year. Swimmers do not advance to this group until they show the proper technique of freestyle, backstroke & butterfly and have built their endurance to allow them to swim for more than 45 minutes. Green group swimmers practice for 1 hour and must be in the 2nd grade or older. Group placement is decided by the coaching staff.
  • Age Group II (Seasonal) - Swimmers move to this group by the recommendation of our coaching staff. Swimmers are placed in our Age Group II (Seasonal) group when they have not fully committed to 12 month year round swimming but have ability to train at a higher level (knowledge of the four competitive strokes, proper flip turns, and interval training) for 1 hour and 30 minutes . The goal of the Age Group II (Seasonal) group is to prepare swimmers for our year round group expectations and increase their commitment to training 4-5 days per week.
