SQUADS & TRAINING
JUNIOR (FORMATIVE) SQUADS
These formative squads progress swimmers from entry level - Junior 4 squad - into competitive swimming. The main emphasis is on instilling proper technique for all strokes, and starts and turns. All ages quoted are for guidance only. There will be exceptions for ‘early’ or ‘late’ development. Progression is at coaches’ discretion, and swimmers progress from Junior 4 towards Junior 1 before moving to the Performance Squads.
Once swimmers are deemed ready by the coaches, they will be moved into the Performance squads. The focus is still on perfecting technique, but swimmers will now be expected to develop in speed and stamina and compete for the the Club in Galas and Open Meets as well as the Club Competitions. Swimmers move from Performance 3 upwards towards Elite Performance.
