Micro League Squad    

                              

This group is for children aged 8 – 12 years who would like to swim for BOBCATS in team and individual competitions. We enter a range of events throughout the year, including:

  • North West Micro Swimming League (Team)
  • North East Lancs Friendly League (Team)
  • Open Meets (Individual)

Swimmers in Micro League Squad work towards the Swim England Club Awards Levels 1-3.

Training focuses on preparing swimmers to set and achieve goals, developing better understanding of pre- and post-pool routines, and using drills to learn more complex movement patterns.

Stroke technique and race skills will be continually developed, with swimmers being expected to demonstrate excellent technique both in training and during races.
