The Advanced Development Squad swimmers are generally aged 9-12 and focus on advanced drills and skill acquisition for all strokes, as well as continuing to develop their aerobic endurance and swimming terminology. They will learn to perform perfect streamlines consistently, perfect Breaststroke Pull-outs (underwater), and must be able to complete a legal 200m Individual Medley. Other skills acquired include reading the pace clock and greater general body strength through land based training. It is expected that these swimmers will be striving for Middlesex County qualifying times across a range of strokes and distances.
