Skill Development

This squad will further concentrate on refining technique and optimising progress of the swimmer. More emphasis will be put on the importance of the turns, starts and finishes. Training distances will begin to increase with more focus on improving aerobic fitness through a variety of skill based sessions.  Swimmer will be expected to be able to hold techniques consistently and have a clear understanding of what they are working on.

Swimmers will be expected to –

  • Compete in League Competitions, Open Meets that they qualify for and time trials.
  •  Work towards County Qualifying times.
  • Maintain  high levels of skill throughout each session
  • Swimmers will be expected to attend all 4 sessions weekly.

Movement between squads will be at the coach’s discretion. Being able to fulfil the criteria in the next squad will not guarantee movement. Movements will be made when the coaching team are confident that swimmers can complete the workloads in the next squad without issue.
