Mission

To inspire and empower swimmers to achieve excellence in sport and life through age-specific and appropriate training for all athletes. Through coaching geared towards challenging and developing each athlete to the best of their abilities, our competitive program - overseen by Boar’s Head Lead USA Coaches Lauren Gander, Erin Lawson, Lindsey Paulson, Bethany Kennon, and Nate Skroban - exemplifies the standards and values of the sport of swimming.

This program is not intended to replace swim lessons. If you are new to USA Swimming or unsure of your swimmer’s current skill level, please reach out to one of our coaches. We want to find the best fit for your child(ren) and will happily arrange an individual evaluation.

Junior (Middle School – Up to four practices per week)

Primarily made up of ages 11 - 14 with an emphasis on stroke technique, aerobic endurance, racing strategies and dryland training. Junior swimmers should be proficient in all four strokes. This group will also be expected to show a respectful and positive attitude at practice. Multi-sport athletes are openly welcomed, as practice schedules are flexible with morning and afternoon options. Swimming in the morning (if chosen) will condition your child to a future high school practice routine. Our coaches make it a priority to encourage a lifelong love for the sport. We currently provide a twice weekly morning option for those swimmers looking to continue year-round training, but who also require flexibility with scheduling. Swimmers are encouraged to attend their practices consistently and to show support for their teammates. We believe that this age group specifically needs positive role models as they transition to high school. Morning and evening practice times are available, each lasting 90 minutes.

Pre-Senior (8th-10th Grade – up to 5 practices per week)

Predominantly made up of ages 13 - 15. These swimmers train with a focus on stroke technique, aerobic endurance, and increasingly more complex practice sets to build upon the skills they already possess. We introduce this group to a more rigorous training program in order to prepare them to compete at a higher level, if they so desire. Swimmers in this group will receive the additional coaching necessary to be competitive in both the USA as well as local high school programs. Coaches will occasionally combine this group with the Senior/National group for practice. This encourages team camaraderie and allows  coaches to get to know more swimmers on a daily basis. Our coaches want your swimmer(s) to develop lasting friendships and will accommodate practice groups when possible so friends can swim together. Practice lasts 90 minutes or two hours, and swimmers are encouraged to attend an average of four practices per week. Many options are available in order to provide flexibility. We encourage our  swimmers to participate in other activities they enjoy.

Senior/National (High School – Up to six practices per Week)

Primarily consists of ages 15 (minimum age of 13 with coaches’ recommendation) and older swimmers who have the ability, desire, and commitment to advance their competitive swimming career. Workouts are designed to challenge athletes to develop their abilities in order to compete at their highest individual level possible. Our coaches meet swimmers at their current skill level to develop personalized goals, whether they are a beginner or elite level.  Stroke technique remains a cornerstone. Emphasis is placed on leadership and community service, creating a positive environment for well-rounded young adults. Coaches will also work towards qualifying as many swimmers as possible to become USA Scholastic All Americans. Swimming in college (if desired) is another main objective and assistance with the recruiting process is offered. Practices last two hours and swimmers are expected to consistently commit to four to five practices per week. Dryland training is also incorporated to increase athletes’ overall strength and conditioning. Several practice options (morning and evening) are available in order to accommodate multi-sport athletes and those who exhibit a broad range of interests. We also strive to provide families with flexibility. Our goal as coaches is to develop your swimmer from a holistic perspective - investing in social, academic, and athletic proficiency.
