Squads

Program Structure

Our program is structured around progressive loading to improve performance whilst not overworking young swimmers. Our junior sessions are shorter to avoid burnout and retain swimmers in the sport. 
We have launched a new Training Schedule and Squad Program where 2 new squads have been introduced, Performance Potential and Elite, with the aim of producing Australian Open medallists and place swimmers on National Teams, competing at major events such as Commonwealths, Worlds and Olympic Games.
