Age Group


Ellis Aquatics Age Group Program

Our age group program is made up of athletes 8 to 14 years old. This group was previously called the Silver, Blue, and Gold groups. Athletes in the age group program must be legal in all four strokes.

Our goal as coaches is develop happy, healthy age group swimmers who love the sport and understand that success comes from hard work and dedication. We work to teach our swimmers the importance of personal responsibility and how to be a leader from a young age.

Most importantly, our age group swimmers are the future of competitive swimming in the central valley and are taught to act as representatives of the program and of the sport.
