As a member of the Senior Group, athletes understand that they are participating in the highest training group in the PVP age group program. School must remain a top priority for swimmers. Senior Group swimmers have identified swimming as their top-choice extra curricular activity and other activities/appointments should be scheduled with PVP practice attendance as the top consideration.
Senior Group swimmers are expected to compete at all meets and are encouraged to consider swimming when making their college choices. Coaches will help swimmers in the college recruiting process.
Training Focus: Swimmers can expect to swim in excess of 5000 yards at each practice. Training will continue to improve and emphasize aerobics. Swimmers will continue to identify and refine their individual events and goals; both long and short term. Lastly, members of this group will also participate in extensive dryland training; including strength training programs.
