Junior Squads

After learn to swim, children are introduced to squad training through our Mini Squad. Swimmers will then progress into the Championship, State or National Squad depending on their age and commitment to swimming.

Competitive swim squads give swimmers the opportunity to improve their swimming fitness, skills and compete at carnivals. We encourage swimmers in the 50 metre pool to come no less than 3 sessions per week.
