Swimmers in this group continue to work on stroke development through drill progressions with a special focus on efficient starts and turns, as well as increasing aerobic development through a progressive increase in distance and intensity. Age Group swimmers are challenged to transfer their technical developments into competition. Goals include developing and executing racing strategy, demonstrating sportsmanship and teamwork, and learning how to train and push themselves in practice. Dryland training is introduced at this level, focusing on injury prevention, and advancing athleticism. Age Group White graduates will advance to Senior Prep or directly to Senior Green.
