Seekers Training Group
This group serves as the bridge between the introductory groups and the performance training groups. The focus is on continued refinement of stroke mechanics, improvement of starts and turns and an increase in aerobic, anaerobic and interval training. Dryland training will increase and incorporate body weight exercises. Long-term and short-term goal setting will be introduced as swimmers begin mental training. Swimmers in this group are expected to participate in the LSC championships at the end of each season.
