In my first post about raising young swimmers (10 & under), I discussed possible swim meet & swim practice time commitments. I also outlined the basics your child would be learning and what experiences they might be learning from.

Now I’ll continue with the next age bracket, pre-high school, 11-14 year olds.

This age range encompasses two age groups that have very significant differences; so I’ll start with 11-12 age group (and save 13-14 year olds for my next post).

What is a plateau in swimming?

A plateau occurs when you stall out on progress despite continuing to do “all of the right things,” usually including eating right, exercising properly, getting adequate rest, etc.

It is the moment when you stop making progress. Stop seeing results. Stop improving your times, even
