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 t
hrough 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!
