Junior Squad Training

Our Junior Squad program is ideal for children who need to learn all four strokes and develop their endurance in a nice small squad group environment and unlike some of the bigger aquatic centres – your child WILL NOT be in a group of 20 to 30 children per coach just swimming lap after lap of compromised technique.

When your child is ready to develop their skills in all four strokes and learn the finer points of swimming like starts, turns and finishes – they can attend the  Junior Squad Program. The benefit of swimming in this squad coaching program is that classes are still small enough to allow your child to gain the most out of the program and their coach! Children range in ages from 5 years to 12 years.

The Junior Squad Training Sessions are held every afternoon  from 430pm to 530pm. As these sessions are one (1) hour in duration, for best results we strongly advise that students attend two (2) sessions per week to get the most out of their training sessions. Whilst we are happy for students to be a part of this group if they only want to train once per week, experience shows us that the students doing two (2) or more sessions per week gain the most benefit from this type of training as they increase their stamina and endurance.

With an increase in stamina and endurance, students are then able to perform the set skills more correctly and enjoy their sessions more. Students at the Junior Squad Training level are usually aged between 7 years and 13 years of age.

The Junior Squad Training program is great for children who are interested in swimming better at their school and zone carnivals, or to compliment their training for surf life saving, triathlons, or water polo.
