The Gold and Silver Plus groups will be set up to prepare swimmers for Summer USS swim meets. The focus will be on training and conditioning.
The Silver group will focus on technique and development while also improving conditioning level. We will also prepare swimmers who want to compete in USS or league meets. Participants do not need competitive experience, but must be able to swim continuously for extended periods.
The Bronze group will work on developing competitive swimming skills such as stroke technique, starts and turns and will introduce swimmers to interval training. No competitive experience is necessary but participants must have basic swimming skills that will allow them keep moving in the water for an hour. This is not a lesson. Our goal is to develop the swimming endurance necessary to allow swimmers to move on to the Silver level. Swimmers in this group can elect to participate in league meets if they join a club team like Swim Ithaca.
