JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT BISONS
Junior Development – This is a 6 day group running Monday-Saturday. Monday-Friday 5-6pm plus 30 minute dryland on Monday and Wednesday’s following the swim. Saturday is 7-9:15am (Swim and Dryland). The goal of this group is continuing to develop skills in all strokes as well as preparing the athletes for the transition to the next group or other opportunities. This group has two components – Junior Development A (JDA) – Full 6 day a week schedule with swimming being their primary sport focus and Junior Development B (JDB), which will be a reduced practice schedule to allow athletes to pursue additional sports at a high level, while still being able to swim and compete. The JDB section may not be offered for the 2017-18 season due to space limitations, example if there are 15 swimmers registered for JDA, the JDB option may not be offered. Going forward to be able to transition to Junior Bison’s 1, athletes will need to be part of JDA.
