Club Development

These swimmers are still coached technically to improve their efficiency through the water, but they can choose if they want to swim once, twice or three times a week. This route can be taken from any of our performance squads, with swimmers still able compete in competition and galas if they wish.

For swimmers over 18, our masters squad is for those looking to meet their own personal goals, whether it be for fitness, competition or just enjoyment. All of our masters sessions are coached, with as much or as little technical guidance as you would like.
