Group Description

The Dawgs Team is designed for advanced age-group swimmers whose goal is eventually to move up to Senior I.

Because of the greater commitment in both time and effort, the Dawgs Team is recommended for swimmers ages 11-14.

As with all the age-group programs at ABSC, proper stroke technique is heavily emphasized, but the Dawgs 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, email Coach Foggin.
