Assistant Meet Manager Needed

We are still looking for an assistant meet manager in order to run the June 17 Aquanaut swim meet. If we cannot find one we will have to cancel the meet. The Assistant Meet Manager will work with Meet Manager to learn how to plan and run a swim meet.

Dryland Training

Dryland training will begin within the next two weeks for those swimmers wishing to participate. It will run for 15-30 minutes after afternoon practice and will cover basic core strength and flexibility. There will be a variety of programs offered for various levels of our swimmers.

Starts & Turns Camps

We will be hosting a turn’s camp for swimmers this upcoming weekend (Saturday, May 13). The camp will run from 1:00-3:00 with the younger swimmers who are just learning flip turns going from 1:00-2:00 and older swimmers who are working on refining their turns doing the 2:00-3:00 session.

A starts camp will be running 1:00-3:00 on May 20 in the same format with beginner swimmers going from 1:00-2:00 and the older swimmers refining their starts from 2:00-3:00.Please call ahead if you plan on attending to ensure lane space: 875-0551

Recommended Microcycles

I’ve included a list of recommended schedules for swimmers of varying levels. This should help parents with planning how many practices a week a swimmer should be or will be attending. I’ve also included a description of each category.

High Performance: This is for our oldest swimmers (15&O) who are looking at preparing themselves to move to the next level of swimming (top winter club or university swim team). They are also encouraged to attend any of the weekend camps and optional dryland sessions. Training times should be from 9-11 in pool training and about 100-140 minutes dryland per week.

   Monday    Tuesday   Wednesday Thursday  Friday
AM           6:45-7:45           6:45-7:45 
PM 3:30-5:30 3:30-5:30 3:30-5:30 3:30-5:30 3:30-5:00

Performance: This is for our middle swimmers looking at moving into the high performance group within the next two years. These swimmers will be 12-15 with a desire to pursue swimming further in the future. These swimmers will be encouraged to attend the weekend camps and optional dryland sessions.Training times should be 5-7 hours in pool training and about 60-120 minutes dryland per week.

Beginner Competitive & Fitness: This is for our younger swimmers who are competitive and have chosen swimming as their main sport and our older swimmers who are swimming for fitness. Dryland is optional at this point for the swimmers and will only involve flexibility and a few core exercises.Training times should be 3-5 hours in pool training.
