Swimmers in this group will be primarily 10-13 years of age attending 4 sessions per week developing strokes technique and racing skills across all four strokes with emphasis on medley, whilst improving fitness and work ethics. This program will begin to establish a sound physiological base for future training from a background of sound skill execution.
Entry into the squad is by invite from the Coach of the State Development Squad in consultation with the Head Coach. Athletes must demonstrate high levels of commitment and performance to maintain their place within the squad with squad re-selections completed after the major performance championships throughout the year.
