Squads for all levels


Junior Squad
Fun & safety is the primary objective of all Junior swimming, coincidentally it is reason we ‘learn to swim’ initially. The Junior Squad aims to increase the swimmer's knowledge and understanding of all four strokes, including the Individual Medley. Swimmers will also be specifically trained through general endurance and specific drill progressions. The swimmers race skills are developed as they expand their competition events.

Silver Squad
The Silver squad is designed for swimmers who wish to compete at a high standard at competition with the goal of qualifying for Gold Coast District and State level competitions. The sessions are based on all four strokes. The program will develop both aerobic and anaerobic systems, which is important for all ages of athlete. The Silver squad will have a large technique and kick focus. Swimmers will continue training in all four strokes and will be required to meet the training standards, as it is important for all swimmers to develop strong foundations in each of the strokes. Each stroke will be developed through specific kick, drill, speed and endurance sets. *Equipment required – flippers, paddles, pull buoy, kickboard and hand paddles.
