Ever wonder why your kids practice as many times as they do, for however many hours they practice for? Here is a great resource that is one of the roots of our training program @EGAC. Swim development is a marathon, not a sprint. Done properly it takes into account both physical and mental development of each swimmer and keeps long term gain, not short-term gain, as the focus,. If you have additional questions about this progression chart or where your swimmer(s) fit on it, please consult with your swimmer’s coach. He/she will give you valuable insight.
