Skills Development Squad

Development Objectives 

The primary objective of this squad is to learn the skills involved in swimming by developing each of the four strokes as well as the core elements of body control, feel for the water, and stable movement patterns. The emphasis is on developing basic movement literacy and fundamental movement skills. If insufficient time is devoted to this stage then it is highly unlikely the young swimmer will reach their full potential. Swimmers will gain an understanding of the importance of training correctly, building friendships and creating strong club culture.
