Squad Criteria

Attending 70% sessions is essential to improvement, this will have a huge affect on performance, strength, skill & fitness. An attendance register will be taken at the start of every session. Swimmers will improve in technique, growth and training. This squad requires ability to swim all 4 strokes, good diving and turns, ability to swim 8X50 freestyle of 1:15, ability to swim kick 6X50 of 1:30 and good underwater streamline and dolphin kick.

Technique

Technique is important because you will always be held back from reaching a competitive speed if you have not mastered technique. In B-Squad training will focus on technique as part of the swimming program. Having a sound foundation of technique allows the athlete to build on stamina and intensity that is required later on in a swimmers career without skill levels breaking down.

Training Ethos

Training is extremely important to a swimmers development. The swimmers ability to train well will have a direct impact on their progression. The b-squad level swimmers, must want to train to improve. Sessions will be challenging at such a young age but in order for performance to increase, these sessions must be met to gain the maximum benefit. Our training sessions promote a healthy lifestyle in a social and fun environment, and provide physical relaxation and a welcome break from the demands of everyday life.

At all time the code of conduct should be followed.


Discipline

Every swimmers behaviour will be taken into consideration as part of the squads selection process.

Racing

Racing techniques will be taught as the swimmer progresses through the swim program, the further through the program the swimmer goes the more advance the training will be to them enable to compete at county or regional level.

Land Training

B-squad land training sessions are by invitation only. Once your coach thinks you are ready for the next level of your swim program you will get an invitation to attend this session.

Sunday Land Training 6:00pm 1 hour at Worksop Leisure Centre
