Competitive Senior

For swimmers age 12 and above (by the end of the year) looking to compete in all Club, County and L3 open meets. Swimmers should be aiming to compete at County Championships in the coming year.

 Stroke technique is good, and swimmers are aiming to maintain technique over greater distances.  Skills for starts, turns, and finishes are good and efficient, but not consistently repeatable.  Swimmers in this squad are aiming to achieve 7.5m underwater with an efficient and streamlined transition.

Swimmers will continue to work on physical conditioning with the focus on maintaining a high standard of technical skills and stroke technique, increasing intensity towards the competition phase. Swimmers will also work on tactical skills to prepare them for competing. 

Lead Coach:  Nikki Merrill

Overview

Competitive Senior 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.

  • Regularly review their goals and objectives

  • Take responsibility for their own training and development

  • Be 100% committed in every training session

  • Bring their own goggles, kick board, pull buoy, water bottle, fins, paddles, snorkels and Norwich Swan hat (all available from the Club Shop) to training sessions

Training

A greater time commitment to training is required to increase stamina, and hence it is recommended that you attend a minimum of 3 sessions per week, along with a land training session.
