Squad

We have four levels of squad swimming available. Our goal for squad swimmers is to provide a training environment that allows each individual to succeed to their maximum ability, whether it is for competition or recreation.

The introductory squad level is Bronze, with lessons lasting for 30 minutes. Students are competent in swimming 50m in all four strokes. They will follow drills that emphasise speed, endurance and technique.

Our Silver level runs for 45 minutes, and there is a greater emphasis on endurance as distances and times are increased. Stroke technique is still an important part of the training at this level.

As the swimmer continues to become stronger and faster, they will progress through to Gold (60 minutes) and finally Platinum (90 minutes). As they move into these levels, distances will continue to increase and timed sets will decrease. They are required to regularly use the pace clock and follow written and verbal drills.
