The Diamond Squad is our most advanced squad and is aimed at swimmers wishing to qualify for Country Championships, State Championships and Australian Age Championships. Open Water swimmers are also catered for.
Diamond Squad members are expected to train 4 times a week.
The separate squad groups are designed to cater for the needs of all swimmers. Coaches assess swimmers accordingly against a number of criteria. Swimmers are then placed into the squad that best caters to their needs. The swimmer’s ability, age and proven commitment to training sessions are all considered when assessing a swimmer’s squad placement.
Swimmers in this squad often compete at regional meets. This squad is able to train 3 times per week. The sets for these children are skill and endurance based. Crystal squad members focus on their race skills and prepare for race meets.
This squad swims 3 times per week and their sets consist of skill based training with an introduction to endurance training. These children are able to do swim meets when they are ready and at the coach’s discretion.
Pearl Squad is for children who are interested in joining our squads and designed for them to be in the water 2 hours per week to learn basic squad etiquette. This squad is all skill based and focuses on not just swimming skills but squad training skills as well. When positions become available in the Amber Squad we are able to move our Pearl Squad children across smoothly.
