The Delta Philosophy
In order to experience continued success and development in the sport of swimming a lifelong training plan has to be carefully designed and implemented. A cornerstone of that plan is athlete progression. Delta Aquatics is proud to be the only swim team in the area designed completely around the concept of athletic progression. A truly progressive program will individualize the training to deal with the different skill, motivational, and committment levels of its swimmers and families. Delta Aquatics is committed to providing a positive athletic experience that will grow with the swimmers developmental abilities.
PROGRESSIVE GROUP DEVELOPMENT
Each training group has a carefully designed set of expectations. As the swimmer progresses through each group these expectations grow to provide a constantly challenging environment for our swimmers. The result of this logical progression is that our swimmes are continuing their development and avoiding many of the performance plateaus that swimmers on other teams experience. Delta Aquatics swimmers do not just excel at their various high schools, they continue to improve throughout their college years.
All swim teams claim to work on stroke technique but Delta Aquatics is one of the few programs that has logical drill progressions as one of its core philosophies. The drills that the swimmers at Delta Aquatics do are sequential in design and help the swimmers develop the skills necessary to be successful. Swimmers who learned through a progressive drill program find it easier to implement the drill skills in their every day swimming. Since these drills are part of our core philosophy, they can be seen demonstrated by all of the groups on the team.
PROGRESSIVE TRAINING CYLCES
Throughout the course of the season our coaches work diligently to implement progressive training cycles. These cycles continually increase in intensity and volume to continue to improve upon the swimmers strength and conditioning.
The Delta Aquatics staff consists of professionally trained coaches. They have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. Our coaches are highly educated with college degrees and many have or are working towards advanced degrees. The coaches are ASCA (American Swim Coaches Association) certified and frequently attend local and national coaching clinics. Our coaching staff provides the assurance that the time your children spend in swimming will be quality time and they strives to create an atmosphere where each swimmer will be able to achieve his or her own potential in a positive and nurturing environment. Delta Aquatics swimmers are introduced to the latest and most effective techniques available in the sport of swimming today. Delta coaches strongly feel that swimming is a long-term sport where development at the age group level greatly influences performance at the senior level.
