Squad Swimming

Squad swimming is for swimmers who have completed the Learn to Swim program. You will be swimming a greater distance for a longer time and focussing on perfecting your technique.

Swimmers are encouraged to come along to our Friday Club nights where they can try out racing and have fun with their friends.

Intermediate Squad (1hr)

Aim of Lessons: To continue perfecting the timing and technique of all four strokes plus the ability to swim greater distances and swim at a greater speed. Concepts like lane sharing and the time clock are introduced. Perfection of turns, dives and finishing techniques.

To Graduate: Need to be able to swim 50m of each stroke with correct turns, starts and finishes.

Senior Squad (1hr 30min)

Aim of Lessons: Training sessions are dependent on individual swimmer goals. Swimmers are expected to swim at least 2-3km per session while working on their endurance, speed, strength and technique. Swimmers should attend a minimum of two quads per week. The Senior Squad program is for swimmers who have reached a high performance level with their swimming and are preparing to compete at a state level.

Basking Sharks (1hr)

This level is ideal for any swimmers in the intermediate or senior squad levels who are wanting to build their swimming fitness and practice their technique but most of all have fun with their friends in the water in a relaxed and ‘low-key’ environment.

Basking Sharks is ideal for kids who love spending time at the beach, Surf Lifesaving swimmers and Water polo swimmers.

Each lesson will have a focus e.g. tumble turns, dives, breaststroke kick, freestyle breathing position so swimmers continue to learn and improve.

Essential Info

Please ensure swimmers have a cap, water bottle and correct fitting goggles (named) at every session.

We ask that all swimmers are on the pool deck, ready to swim 5 minutes prior to class commencement with all swim equipment ready. It is disruptive to the program if children arrive late.
