Practice Groups

MINI MARLINS/TRANSITION SWIM TEAM:

The Mini Marlins group is comprised of swimmers ages 5-8 with a competitive spirit and the need for experience. They will learn rhythmic breathing and competitive strokes. As skills improve, swimmers are encouraged to compete in meets. Swimmers who can swim 25 yards independently are welcome to join this group.

MARLINS:

This group is comprised of experienced 8 & unders, 9-10 year olds, and newer 11-12 year olds. Stroke skills are reinforced and competitive preparation is introduced. Emphasis is placed on stroke development/correct technique, and building swimming endurance.

JR. SUPER MARLINS:

This group is comprised of experienced 9-10 year olds and 11-12 year olds, and newer 13 & olders. The emphasis is on endurance, commitment, and competition. Stroke technique will be reviewed as necessary and race strategy is introduced.

SR. SUPER MARLINS:

This group is our most competitive group and is comprised of 13 & olders (11-12 year olds at the coaches’ discretion). Emphasis is placed on intensive water training with a continued focus on endurance, commitment, and competition. Stroke technique is reviewed as necessary and race strategy is reinforced. It is further expected that all Sr. Super Marlins serve as role models for their younger teammates.
