Dawgs II

Expand and Grow

The Dawgs 2 group is designed for swimmers in grades 6-8 whose goals are to move up to Dawgs 1 or Senior 2, and to compete at the state level.

Swimmers in Dawgs 2 are committed to the sport of swimming. They aim to become high-level swimmers through building a strong aerobic base and refining stroke technique to meet the desired shapes and patterns of each stroke as prescribed by the ABSC staff. The main goal of the group is to add every event in the 13-14 year-old USA Swimming IMX List to the list of events they can confidently swim in swim meets. This demonstrates as strong aerobic base both in practice and in meets.

Dawgs 2 swimmers also learn about nutrition and energy systems, dryland training, and goal setting.​

Participation in meets is strongly recommended. To find out more about the Dawgs 2, email Coach Lydia Scharff.
