The goal of the season will be to improve technique as well as conditioning. The first six weeks of the season will be spent concentrating on freestyle and then we will move onto stroke technique. During this time, workouts will be aimed at improving basic aerobic endurance. Once the stroke basics are perfected, we will start incorporating anaerobic and sprint training.

  1. The workout for the last day of practice is the same workout as the first day of practice with an added bonus if you finish early. Congratulations! You have come a long way since day 1.


    • Apparently, the masters program isn’t in the registration computer yet. I was told that you will be able to register on Monday, Sept. 11, but I might try later in the week. I do not know if this means that registration will be available online or not. You may have to phone it it.
