Long Term Athlete Development Stage: FUNdamental | LEARN TO TRAIN

Parents Guide to Long Term Athlete Development


The aim of the Top Age Group (TAG) is to educate young swimmers about the correct training and competitive pathways, continue to develop drills, stroke technique, starts and turns. The training environment remains fun, however a greater emphasis is placed on competition, training correctly and discipline. Swimmers will be aiming to compete at the local and regional level and aspiring to compete at MAC hosted events, primarily at Markham Pan Am Pool. Swimmers who excel in this squad will progress to either the Bronze or the JAG Group depending on competition performance and training commitment. Swimmers will understand that their performance will be directly related to their effort and commitment and will be expected to take more responsibility for their own training.
