Junior squad is the stepping stone to competitive swimming. The primary focus is on learning competitive stroke and race techniques, with emphasis on stroke technique, teamwork, basic training etiquette and discipline.
Junior Squad is designed for children predominately 6 years and older, and is targeted at swimmers that have completed all the skills associated with learn to swim lessons. Junior Squad’s focus is 1-2 key concepts every session, and swimmers within each individual session will be allocated to the lane & group that provides the optimal learning environment. This optimal learning environment is created through the coaching team encouraging every swimmer to achieve their best and ensuring all swimmers within every individual session are allocated to the appropriate lane & group for that sessions focus (i.e for example if the sessions focus is kicking, swimmers are allocated into appropriate lanes & groups based on their kicking abilities).
The coaching team strongly believes that this provides every Junior swimmer attending any Junior session extremely high quality & effectiveness. Junior Squad swimmers are required on a daily basis to meet the behavioural and attitude criteria associated with this level and will be continually assessed. Swimmers must have also met the required technical skills, (these technical skills will be judged at the discretion of the coaching team and will determine the ideal learning environment for every swimmer). The squads’ philosophy is provide an inclusive training environment for all swimmers that meet the required criteria and create the optimal learning environment. Fun & safety is the primary objective of all Junior swimming, coincidentally it is reason we ‘learn to swim’ initially.
Our Squad programs are designed to suit all levels of swimmer from young swimmers moving out of learn to swim to junior squad, competitive swimmers of all ages, fitness swimmers and international athletes.
