Senior Squad

This squad is for swimmers aged 11 and up who do not meet the criteria for the Competition Squad or who do not wish to actively complete at the required level but wish to continue Squad training.

Senior Squad swimmers will develop IM skills and be introduced to zonal training and learn how this benefits the development of core fitness and speed. Swimmers will have to show willingness to learn and develop their own skills. Swimmers can compete at competitions they qualify for as well as Club Championships. Sessions are short to mid distance with sprint training included.
