Training Guidelines for squad swimmers

 

Leander is a swimming club for swimmers who want to train regularly, maintain fitness and, for many, work towards competing at county, Regional and National level. At the younger age groups your swimmer/s will start by competing at internal galas and as they work through the squads will be asked to compete at external open meets.  We at Leander believe swimming is not only a life skill that is essential but is also a healthy lifetime activity that can take you into other water based activities.

To get the most out of the club they will need to attend and commit an amount of time to attend sessions. We find the more a swimmer attends the more they enjoy, as they progress, achieve and stay with their teammates through the levels. Less attendance has the reverse effect, as their friends move up without them and progress can cease.  

We are asking for a minimum attendance

Minimum recommended sessions per week.

As a guide we ask that the swimmers attend at least 75%-80% of the squads allotted sessions on a regular basis, We are trying to establish a regular routine from the start of their swimming journey. If your child trains at school in a school swim squad we will consider this as one of their sessions.

We hope your child will enjoy swimming at Leander and fulfil their potential.
