Maxwell is a competitive swimming club that develops swimmers in line with the ASA's recommendations and using the Youth Physical Development Model of Long Term Athlete Development.
Starting with our Academy squads, developing from 2-4 hours of training per week, swimmers will learn the competitive rules, develop their competitive skills whilst also improving technique and stamina.
Swimmers then progress through the squad system based on achieving specific criteria. Maxwell looks at the whole swimmer when determining a suitable squad, assessing competitive ability, attendance, training ability, technical ability and psychosocial skills.
Equipment List (Updated October 2015)
Land Training Equipment - Swimmers MUST wear trainers that support a correct foot arch and support the ankle. Shorts are also recommended for land training that takes place on poolside, and for sessions in the studio, swimmers should also have appropriate tshirts.
