Level I A - Year-Round

The Level 1 group is for swimmers who are ages 11-18 and have previous competitive experience. The Level 1 group will focus on refining stroke technique while increasing endurance and speed. Practices will be less focused on direct stroke instruction and more intense to prepare swimmers for higher levels of competition. This group will also focus on racing technique and strategy. Attendance will be taken for both of the Level 1 groups. This group is split into two sub groups ? Level 1B & Level 1A.Level 1A: Requires a more serious commitment to the sport of swimming. These swimmers are capable of competing at the YMCA District & State meets. Level 1A must be able to repeat Freestyle in yards (a) 8x 50?s on :45 and (b) 6 x 100?s on 1:30 to be placed in this group. If your swimmer is interested in a dry land program that your swimmer can complete on their own, please contact Coach MaryAlice. It is recommended that the 1A swimmers attend 4 of the 5 practices a week. If your swimmer cannot commit to this please let the coaching staff know and they will be moved to either Level 1B or the Barracuda Academy.
