Swimmers in this group are expected to complete the IMX events during the season and to compete in both league meets and open meets. This group is also working towards achieving LSC championship times, zone times, and national meets.
Senior Development: This group is designed for swimmers eager to take the next step in their age group swimming career. Senior Development swimmers are expected to attend practice 4 days per week, complete the IMX events during the season, and compete in both league meets and open meets. This group is also working towards achieving LSC championship times and zone times. Swimmers must achieve a 9-10 year old “AA” motivational time standard, a 11-12 year old “A” motivational time standard, a 13-14 “BB” motivational time standard, or be invited by the head coach.

These swimmers participate in league meets and some open meets and are able to complete sets of 50s during practice.

Program Notes - Progressive Approach
EAST uses a "progressive" age group program designed to develop the child physically, mentally, and emotionally in a systematic fashion. A well-defined, long-term approach of gradually increasing degrees of commitment is essential to reach peak performance levels during a swimmer's physiological prime. The emphasis in the early stages of participation must be placed on developing technical skills and a love for the sport. In the later years, a more demanding physical and psychological challenge is implemented into the training program. In addition to emphasizing long-term rather than short term results, EAST has established training groups of swimmers who are compatible in respect to abilities, commitment levels and goals.
