Summer 2013 Practice Schedule
Fall 2012 Practice Schedule
Practices will focus on stroke development, improving stroke technique, and building endurance. Depending on the skill group, 'Dry-land' training can include, but is not limited to, stretching exercises, strengthening exercises using large rubber bands, balance exercises using large balls, cardiovascular training such as running, and weight room work outs.
In addition to the practice sessions mentioned above, one optional 30-minute stroke clinic is offered each week.
A yoga class is offered once a week to all swimmers in the Silver, Gold and Senior groups as well as any swimmer in the Bronze group who is at least 10 years of age. This class embodies KCST's unique commitment to the "whole athlete." Our instructor is both a certified yoga teacher and a licensed medical massage therapist. This class emphasizes work towards the improvement of flexibility, strength building and breathing techniques. The benefits of simultaneously becoming stronger and more flexible are numerous and include a fuller range of motion, fewer overuse injuries and better posture.
The team offers pre-season conditioning/training programs for summer swimmers beginning in May and high school swimmers beginning in September.
Team practices will be held at the Kettering Recreation Complex main pool.
