This year Hydra Swimming is restructuring our practice groups to better serve our swimmers and their families and adding 3 new groups to provide extra flexibility. Our practice groups will now be separated into 3 levels: Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced.
Hydra Swimming offers 2 ways to participate: Aspire and Perform. Aspire is our training-only track, while Perform is our all-inclusive competitive track. Aspire and Perform swimmers practice and attend team functions together, get the same great instruction, and participate in the Hydra Haunt intrasquad meet and Rule the Pool. Perform swimmers have the opportunity to attend all other swim meets as well.
|SIRENS||NAVY I||NAVY II|
|Precompetitive program for swimmers 5-9 transitioning from lessons to a swim team||Competitive program for swimmers 5-9 with a focus on building a technical foundation in a fun setting||Competitive program for swimmers 10-13 with a focus on building a technical foundation with their peers|
The Novice groups are designed to give swimmers a technical foundation in an age-appropriate setting. Whether your child is just beginning in competitive swimming or needs to build some technical skills before tackling more advanced set work, they deserve a place to learn and grow at their own pace and with their peers. Sirens and Navy I focus on building a strong foundation in all 4 competitive strokes using fun and engaging drills. Navy II allows older novice swimmers the chance to build their swimming endurance and round out their technical skills with swimmers their own age.
|AQUA I||AQUA II||AQUA III|
|Competitive program for swimmers 8-12 with a focus on learning new competitive skills in a low-pressure environment||Competitive program for swimmers 10-13 with continued development of advanced skills and increased practice intensity||Competitive program for swimmers 11-14 with an emphasis on elite level training and performance for age group swimmers|
The Advanced groups are a sequence to help swimmers develop their endurance, race strategy, and more advanced technique. Swimmers progress through the Aqua groups as they build their competitive skills like starts, turns, finishes, pacing, and mental preparation. Aqua swimmers continue to work on all 4 competitive strokes while learning how to use the pace clock and run sets, building in intensity as they grow. Aqua Perform swimmers are working toward success at each season’s championship meets.
|GOLD I||GOLD II||SENIOR|
|Training program for swimmers 14+ with an emphasis on maintaining active lifestyles to support success outside of the pool||Competitive program for swimmers 13+ transitioning to senior swimming with increased intensity and specialization||Competitive program for swimmers 15+ with an emphasis on elite level training and performance and increased dedication|
The Advanced groups provide swimmers in 8th-12th grades a variety of options based on their technical skill, ability, and goals. Gold I gives swimmers the opportunity to develop their technique, maintain their fitness, and enjoy the sport as a complement to their other activities and academics. Gold II transitions swimmers from age group to senior swimming with increased specialization, training intensity, and in-water time; Gold II Perform swimmers are focused on qualifying for Junior Olympics, Zones, and high school championship line-ups. Senior is our elite level for upper-level high school swimmers focused on placing at high school conference and Sectional meets, and qualifying for high school Districts/States and USA Sectionals and above.
