Swim Lessons
 
Group lessons are offered to young swimmers (age 3 and up) to learn to swim, with an experienced instructor in the water with them.  We have lifeguards and a coordinator present at all times. Lessons will occur with no more than 6 swimmers per instructor and will be 30 min in length.  The session can vary but is usually twice per week for 3 consecutive weeks.  Lessons follow a curriculum based on water safety, followed by stroke proficiency.

You can find more information about our lessons on this page.

Team Structure

THT uses a progressive age group program designed to develop the child physically and mentally in a systematic manner. There are six groups, based upon the swimmer’s age and ability. Group assignments are determined by the coaching staff after an observed swim. We have modeled our program on the USA Swimming "American Development Model" to ensure our swimmers have the greatest chance of growth and development. These training groups are:

Orange - Our beginner group where swimmers learn the very basics.  Practices are offered 3 times per week for 45 minutes.  Swimmers are generally under 8 years old.

Blue - A developmental group a step above Orange.  Practices are offered 3 times per week for 60 minutes.  Swimmers are generally 8-10 years old.

Bronze -  A group working on the transition from technique to training.  Practices are offered about 5 times per week for 60 minutes. Swimmers are generally 9-11 years old.

Silver -  Our lower-level training group.  Practices are offered about 6 times per week for 90 minutes.  Swimmers are generally 10-12 years old.

Gold - Our highest-level training group.  Practices are offered 6 times per week for 2 hours.

Senior - This group is our high school-aged athletes. Practices are offered 6-9 times per week for up to 2 hours.

Masters - This group is for adults interested in either fitness or competition. Practices are offered up to 9 times per week.
