Dorking Swimming Club

Junior Development 

An ideal guideline age is 8 - 10 years old.

Technique and swimming skills

  • Continue to develop all 4 strokes and continue to develop key race skills.
  • There is emphasis on preparation for competition.
  • Continue developing understanding of FINA competition rules.
  • Begin to learn technique and efficiency of strokes, starts, and turns.


  • Each week, we recommend attendance of all sessions to make as much progress as possible. However, by attending 2 out of 3 sessions a week you can still achieve a high level of progress.
  • Please ensure that you arrive on poolside 10 minutes prior to the start of your session.



Please Note:

All swimmers that are Primary or Junior School age 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.
