Squad structure

Children who swim in the teaching pool start of in ducklings, ducklings are children who are non- swimmers, when they are able to swim unaided they will move to Pre-academy 1 or 2 depending on the time they wish to swim. Once in Pre-academy groups they will begin more practices such as breathing to the side on front crawl and begin the understanding of breaststroke and dolphin, until they are ready for Academy 1. Academy 1 is swimming Lengths in the teaching pool. Focusing on technique and developing their strokes more until they are ready for the main pool. Once ready they go to a club group in the main pool or Academy 2.

We also have Pre-academy 3 on a Tuesday night which is a half hour lesson for those they are not as strong for Academy 2 but can swim 25m and are confident in deep waters.

Our club groups are for those wanting to swim once a week.

Academy 2 mainly consists of our younger strong swimmers, swimming twice a week. Once we feel the swimmers in Academy 2 are ready they will move to Pre-comp 1 or 2 depending on the dates and venues which suit you best.

We then have Junior comp 1 and 2 for our strong younger swimmer. Finally we have the Senior comp 1, 2 and 3, for our strong older swimmers.
