Iowa City Eels Swim Club  

Cubes Group Description:

Cubes training reinforces fundamental skills introduced in Frost with more routine conditioning, a pointed emphasis on turns, and a number of stroke specific drills. Most Cubes swimmers start in the Frost group, and range from ages 9 to 12. Cubes compete in all home meets, ISI Championship meets, and at least one meet a month; swimmers should expect to eventually swim longer, more challenging events, including 200s of stroke, 200 IM, and the 400/500 FR. Practices place a strong emphasis on following instructions and increasingly consistent performance. Swimmers are expected to contact a head coach for makeup practices if they can not meet the minimum number of workouts each week.

Practices:
