The Senior Practice Group is one of four senior training groups for the Wilton Y Wahoos. The Senior squad is a transitional training group from the Gold squad to the Pre-National squad. All swimmers must be at least 13 years of age, and are encouraged to attend no less than five practices per week throughout the year. Practices are Monday thru Friday evenings as well as Saturday mornings. Dryland sessions are offered weekdays. Competitions will vary depending on ability level. Championship meets include YMCA States, Regional Championships and the Age Group Championship meet for those who achieve qualifying times.
To be considered for advancement to the Pre-National squad a swimmer must be among the top performers in practice on a daily basis and be able to train at an aerobic interval of 1:20 per 100 yards for a distance of 1,000-2,000 yards.
