The LFSC Age Group Distance Duck Meet was begun in 1980 by Coach Maureen as part of the LFSC program philosophy of career development. The meet provides a unique opportunity for our younger swimmers to achieve in events not normally offered to them at regular meets. The meet offers a great opportunity for personal improvement, helps establish an awareness of the relationship between practice and performance, provides an on-going evaluation of aerobic development, and makes the transition to senior events easier.
Swimmers participate in either the 200 free (Mighty Ducks and some novice swimmers), the 400 free (Yellow group and most Green Group swimmers), or the 1500 free (Bronze Group and some Green Group swimmers). The primary goal of the meet is to reinforce the concept of personal improvement over time and to encourage the development of a well-rounded aerobic training foundation prior to the senior swimming years.
All swimmers receive participation awards recording their personal improvement. The ultimate award is the “Distance Duck” T-shirt, awarded to swimmers who break the 20 minute barrier in the 1500 free. Since 1980 only 60 LFSC age group swimmers (24 boys and 36 girls) have achieved this distinction.
