The Senior training group is the top level of training available with the Makos. Athletes must participate in morning workouts, championship meets, travel meets and training trips. Swimmers in this group strive to be Junior Olympic Champions and qualify and score in meets such as Eastern Zones, Metro Senior Championships, Sectionals and Junior Nationals. Swimmers must be in good health and injury free and have the ability to train in all four competitive strokes. The Senior 2 group swimmers must have the training base for entry into the group and have previously demonstrated consistently high attendance over the previous seasons. They must display a positive and respectful attitude, be accountable, and be committed to the process. They must be a true teammate and care about not only their own individual success, but their teammates’ as well. The group dynamic and team culture is dependent on the expectation that each swimmer brings something important for the betterment of the group and the team.
