This squad continues the refinement and development of all competitive strokes and marks the change from a learn to swim class to a squad environment. The swimmers will generally do 25m at a time with a major focus on good technique. This squad will also introduce new skills such as streamlining, tumble turns and racing dives.
This squad is a continuation of the skill and technique acquisition from Novice squad and starts to introduce more focus on the sport of competitive swimming along with the introduction of “squad skills” like using the pace clock and reading training sets from the board to carry out specific sets on a time cycle.
This squad is for swimmers with squad experience who are endeavouring to improve their fitness, skills and technique to a competitive level. This squad also prepares swimmers to be able to step up to the senior squad.
This squad is for competitive swimmers seeking to achieve at a high level and are committed to swimming as their chosen sport. Entry into this squad is at the discretion of the Head Coach, with a minimum number of sessions required to ensure consistent levels of training and performance are achieved.
