~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Swimmer's abilities are evaluated by the coach of these programs and a swimmer will move up when they demonstrate the proper efficiency and mastery to attend the next higher group.

When an athlete has successfully reached the ability to move to the next level of the  program, the coaches of both groups will confer with each other and determine the swimmer's abilities and possible change in status.  When it is agreed that a change is to be made, the swimmer and parent will be informed of their eligibility to move into the next higher group.
