Swimmers are placed into groups based on ability and age. Returning Dolphins should attend the group they attended the previous year. Coaches may adjust a swimmer’s practice group up or down one practice group/age group level based upon the swimmer’s abilities and the number of swimmers in each practice group. Swimmer must attend their appropriate practice group. Attendance at a differing practice time requires prior approval from a coach. In addition to our regular swim groups we are bringing back the Minnows this season. If you child tries out for the team and is unable to complete a full lap without stopping they will be placed in the Minnows group. The purpose of this group is to get the swimmer ready to move up to participate with the Squirts by the practice meet.
Minnows (ages 6 and under): Swimmers who cannot make it across the pool at tryouts but seem close enough that with additional help and lessons will be able to meet the requirements of the Squirt group by the practice meet.
Squirts (ages 6 and under): Swimmers still learning all four strokes, but who can complete a full lap without stopping.
Bottlenose (7 and 8 year olds) : Swimmers know all four strokes and are able to comfortably swim 4x25 on the minute.
Spinners (9 and 10 year olds) : Swimmers swim all four strokes legally and are able to swim 5x50 yards on the minute and 30 seconds.
Fins (11 and 12 year olds) : Swimmers can swim 50 yards of all four strokes legally, and can do flip turns.
Flippers (13 to 18 year olds) : Swimmers working on speed and endurance. They can swim all four strokes and a set of 50 free on the minute or faster.
