Swimmers are broken up into 3 groups based on ability. Groups are fluid in the program and swimmers might switch groups depending upon the stroke focus for a class. Siblings of different ability can swim in the same class and all get what they need.
- This group is for swimmers that can comfortably swim freestyle and backstroke. The group will work on refining free and back and will introduce swimmers to breaststroke and fly. Proper starts and turns will also be introduced. The majority of practice will be spent on drills to improve stroke technique.
- This group is able to swim all four strokes, but might not be perfect or legal with all strokes. This group will spend about 50% of the class on technique drills and 50% of the time working on improving swimming strength and endurance.
- This group is able to swim all four strokes legally and comfortable with all turns. Stroke and turn technique will be refined, but swimmers will spend most of practice working on swimming strength and endurance as well as race strategy.
