Junior Squad
Fun & safety is the primary objective of all Junior swimming, coincidentally it is the reason we ‘learn to swim’ initially. Junior Squad is designed for children predominately 6 years and older and is targeted at swimmers that have completed all the skills associated with learning to swim lessons. Junior Squad’s focus is 1-2 key concepts every session, and swimmers within each individual session will be allocated to the lane & group that provides the optimal learning environment.
JUNIOR – 2-3 sessions per week.
Senior Squad
Senior squad is designed for senior multi-sport athletes. It targets the specific endurance and speed requirements of the athlete’s primary sport and event.  Sessions are designed to help swimmers develop skills & physical conditioning specifically for competitive sports. There is no minimum number of training sessions, however, if swimmers wish to compete at a competitive school level or higher, they are encouraged to complete a minimum of 2-3 sessions a week.
Adult/ Swimfit+ 
Our Adult Squad sessions are designed to improve performance and technique. This level is for those who are looking to improve their swimming technique and fitness. It is suitable for a wide variety of people, from beginners through to competitive swimmers training for Masters, Triathlon and/or Ocean swimming.
