Club Development

(Previously called Development Age 3)

For those swimmers age 12 and over working towards stages 7 to 9 of the Norwich Swan competitive awards

Lead Coach: Tina Bedder


Development Age swimmers are expected to:

  • Be on poolside at least 10 minutes before the session to complete an efficient land warm up and be briefed before the session.
  • Take responsibility for your own training and development.
  • Bring your own, goggles, hat, kick board, pull buoy, water bottle and fins to every session.
  • Have a goal of progressing to Development Age 1 or 2 depending on their competition needs.


Training will be based on the Norwich Swan Plan for Swimming Stages 7 to 9. Swimmers will work on developing excellent technique on all four strokes as well as starts, turns and finishing skills.
