There are three swimming sessions available for this squad per week. Times and venues as shown.

Squad members should be able to cover between 800-1200m during per hour during a training session.

This squads objectives are: -

  • Develop and improve stroke technique on all four competitive strokes.
  • Starts and turns.
  • Develop Aerobic condition of swimmer.
  • Introduce speed work.
  • Introduce basic competition techniques.

Have you got the right equipment?

You must have the following for every training session:

  • Two pairs of goggles
  • Kick-board
  • Fins (short ones)
  • Costume / shorts
  • Water bottle

Check your bag well before you leave for your session, don't leave until the last minute and don't trust anyone else to do it for you!

Please Note:

All swimmers under 13 must have a responsible adult present for all training sessions, and the swimmer must know who they are (if it's not the parent), in case of emergency.
