The mission of our Senior training program is to develop our top-tier athletes into nationally recognized student-athletes. The dedication, work ethic, time management and goal setting skills learned in this group aim to develop life skills essential for future success in all areas of life.

Swimmers in this group should envision themselves as swimmers at the next level upon graduation. Through their experience in this group, SST Senior swimmers will develop strong opportunities to achieve athletic scholarship at the University level.

SST senior swimmers will have an opportunity to begin specificity training around their focus events and personal needs.
