SET YOUR SIGHTS ON GOLD!
SwimFit is a technique-based swimming fitness program that utilizes the same core principles of the NAC Competitive Team. NAC coaches will instruct swimmers on all four competitive strokes with the goal to gain endurance through drills and kicking. Athletes will also be instructed on racing skills such as dives, turns and streamlines. Everyone will leave feeling like they got a good workout and are part of a swim team. At the completion of each session, the swimmers will have the opportunity to compete in a practice meet, which will provide a positive environment to dive from the starting blocks, practice racing and show off newly learned skills.

Where/when are SwimFit practices held?
The SwimFit groups practice at the Centennial Sportsplex located on 25th Avenue in Nashville. Practices are offered in the afternoon, 2-4 times a week for 45 minutes-1 hour each, depending on the level and age of your athlete.
If my child is placed, how many practices should he/she attend?
The staff will introduce skills, terminology and techniques that will aid in the progressions and development of each athlete in the group. Each SwimFit group has a given number of practices offered, based on the level, age and ability of the swimmers in the group. Athletes may attend all or only a selective number of days throughout the session. Depending on each athlete’s individual goal, attending the number of workouts offered will help them achieve those goals and progress more rapidly.
For athletes looking to progress onto the competitive team, attendance and ability will be evaluated in order for the transition to best for the athlete, depending on their level in SwimFit, and what level is best suited for them with the competitive team. It is in the best interest of the swimmers with such goals to consistently attend the number of practices offered each week in order to see progress and continue their development with the SwimFit program.
How many sessions will my swimmer attend?
Each athlete is very individual in their development and progression. Many swimmers spend multiple sessions in SwimFit, depending on the ultimate goal of each athlete.
Do I need to give up other sports if I swim with NAC?
NAC realizes that young children should participate in a variety of sports and activities. As a program, we want to foster the love of the sport while encouraging our athletes to stay engaged and develop coordination and athleticism on a variety of platforms. Many of our swimmers are very involved in other activities and have found a nice balance which allows them to continue swimming, while competing and staying involved in other activities.
