The competitive team is divided into four practice groups. Scroll down for full descriptions and practice schedules:

  • The Novice group is for beginning, 12 and younger, and first-year swimmers who cannot swim all the competitive strokes independently but would like to begin competing.
  • The Intermediate group is for 13 and younger swimmers who can swim all strokes legally and are learning the concepts of training and competition.
  • The Junior group is for more advanced swimmers working towards High School or senior swimming competition that have demonstrated a good work ethic and are looking to step up their training.
  • The Senior group is for older swimmers who are serious about the sport and are striving to be competitive on a State or National level.

The 2022-23 Short Course Season begins September 6, 2022.
