Entry into the squad is that the swimmer will have met all the requirements of the Junior Squad or at the discretion of the coaches.
Criteria for entry into this squad will be based around performance in the following:
Correct stroke, breathing and turns
Correct stroke, breathing, turns and dive starts
Correct stroke, turns with technique
Minimum distance without fins, correct stroke and turns
|100 I.M.||Correct changeovers with each stroke and finishes.|
Swimmers must arrive early before they do their water session. During this time they must do their dry land stretching and strengthening exercises.
Training equipment that the swimmer must bring to pool deck:
Goggles (and spare if required), water bottle, flippers and own set of paddles if they have them.
- Healthy eating habits
- Introduction into more training sets with technique.
- Skills and drills in all strokes and I.M. swims increasing in distance.
- Learn race skills
- Develop race tactics
- Goal setting and keeping a log book
- Improve body strength with basic speed in endurance and short race sets
Swimmers should try to make themselves available for all sessions. As membership increases with more pool time, hopefully made available to the Club, then the current swimmers will be allocated more training times. Your coach will contact you when the time comes.
Training should be a minimum of three (3) sessions per week.
