Practices

Practices run from mid-September thru June. See below for specific locations.

We offer three ability-based sessions on Sundays, as well as three combined weekday sessions, and Saturday.

Standard Practices typically consist of a warm-up, drills, a “star” or key set, and a cool-down.

Sundays

Location: Sylvania Northview High School

4:00-5:00pm - STRONG SWIMMERS – Experienced swimmers who may have competed in high school, college, or participate in triathlons with a 1-mile swim time of less than 30 minutes. Should be capable of swimming at least three strokes; interested in improving aerobic ability as well as honing technique.

5:00-6:00pm INTERMEDIATE SWIMMERS – Experienced swimmers who may have participated in triathlons with a 1-mile swim time of less than 45-50 minutes but greater than 30 minutes. Capable of swimming at least two strokes; interested in improving technique while improving aerobic capability.

6:00-7:00pm for NEWER OR BEGINNING SWIMMERS – For both newer swimmers and beginners who are capable of swimming freestyle (front crawl) but in need of becoming more comfortable in the water through technique-based training (bi-lateral breathing, kicking, underwater stroke, etc.). Possible goal being to swim ½ mile in a triathlon and understand “sets” by the end of the season.
