2013 Fall Technique Development Program
2013 FALL "TECHNIQUE DEVELOPMENT" PROGRAM
(September 10th through December 14th)
Once again the Terrapins will be offering our popular Fall Technique Development Program for all swimmers who wish to extend their summer swim season and experience a USA Swimming Team, or for newer swimmers that may be interested in the swim team experience. The Terrapin program is highly instructional and "sets the standard" both locally and nationally.
** Training Group Structure **
In 2011 we made some changes to our training groups structure. If you have not been in the program or are returning after some time, you will see some unfamiliar changes to our group structure. These changes are designed to to better suit the developmental needs of our athletes and provide appropriate training groups for all ability levels and training abilities.
Due to this we will be conducting "group placement evaluations" for any new fall program participants to determine the appropriate training group for each swimmer based on current swimming and training ability.
To receive a group assignment please attend one of the following drop-in evaluation dates listed below.
Tuesday 9/3 @ 6-7 pm
Wednesday 9/4 @ 5-6 pm
Thursday 9/5 @ 5-6 pm
