This is the highest level of training at Highlander Aquatics. Swimmers in this squad are focused on maximizing their training for the purpose of competing at the highest levels of swimming including state, regional, national and international competitions. The senior group will incorporate strength training, dry land, goal setting, and personal accountability as well as emphasis on swimming technique, race strategy and training to accomplish team and individual goals.

Minimum Requirements:
Age: 13 years old (typical age range of swimmers is 14-18)
Ability: Coach Todd Mann will determine swimmer’s readiness for this squad.
Training:  7 to 11 workouts per week including 1+ am workouts before school pending on Seasonal Plan.
Vacation: Discretion encouraged
Communicate with Coaching Staff about any practice conflicts at least 24 hours in advance.

Moving Up
As swimmers improve and age up from one age group to another, they will be moved up as long as they meet the training demands of the new group. It is both the coach's and swimmer's decision as to whether a move to a group with minimum training requirements will be made through a gradual commitment to practice, each child is taught to set goals and work hard to achieve those goals. Through positive encouragement and an occasional stern push, a child will learn to push themselves toward testing their own limits each and every day. A child will learn that hard work leads to achievement and success, and achievement is fun!
