​County Development Squad

The Squad

Where it all begins!  This is where the swimmers start on the competitive ladder and learn the skills to progress as high as they can imagine in the sport. This squad is where athletes, and parents, are educated to the expectations and demands of elite level training. This includes an education into their swimming ethics and their mental approach to training.

The squad primarily focuses on developing the skills necessary to prepare the swimmers for the next stage of their athletic career.

Four sessions per week with like-minded competitive individuals, who become firm friends, is where all of our top level athletes started at a young age. Being in a team of swimmers, dedicated to making themselves the best athletes they can be, is an incredible place for a young person to grow up.  This squad is brimming with county qualifiers,and determined young people, dedicated to being better.

Total swim hours: 6.75 hours on a full week of training
