This group's focus is on polishing their four competitive strokes an to build up their endurance. Swimmers will have opportunity to swim in YMCA dual meets. The 11 and over group will practice three times a week for 1 hour. Swimmers should be able to: Swim 100 yards (4 lengths) of freestyle and backstroke, swim 50 yards (2 lengths) of breaststroke and butterfly (must know and attempt a 25 of each stroke), and have some knowledge of flip turns.
