Transition squad is designed for swimmers who have graduated from the Learn to Swim program, easing the children across to the 50m pool and into a squad program. The main focus is on stroke correction and fine-tuning technique to continue progression and develop children into strong swimmers.
Junior Squad is for swimmers who have learnt the basics of squad training and the basic drill movements in all four strokes. There will be a greater focus on developing swimming fitness through repeat/high intensity sets.
Senior Squad is our highest level and is for swimmers who demonstrate sound technique in all four strokes and understand the fundamentals of squad training. All members must be motivated and able to work independently.
