Entry Squad


This is the first step on the ladder at Durham City Aquatics. Our Entry Squad is designed to bridge the gap between the National Plan for Teaching Swimming and club/competitive swimming. In Entry Squad you will develop the skills you learned in your swimming lessons. You will learn that movement patterns that may have seemed stand alone in Learn to Swim are part of more advanced movements that all come together to make you a better swimmer.


Our Entry Squad Coaches have a tonne of experience in teaching and coaching swimming. Drawing on personal experience and continuing professional development, the Entry Squad coaching team are the ideal practitioners to give you the best grounding in the world of competitive swimming.


The squad itself is not competitive, but athletes will be invited to take part in internal competitions and some may also have the opportunity to compete in the Junior League.
