My name is Craig McCormick and I am the Assistant Varsity coach for the University of Manitoba swim team and I’m the Junior Bison age group lead coach. We made the shift to this format of training 7 years ago when we created our age group club and following a version of this training we have developed several Canadian National Age group Champions and have broken many long standing provincial age group records (some 20 years old or more). This has been accomplished with swimming/training once a day 6 days a week for 12 hours (or less) a week swimming and focused dry land). Stroke technique and race specific speed training are the keys we have used and trying to lead by example as our country as a whole still believes in the 80’s belief system training!
