This is a competitive Squad. The events targeted for this squad are Division 2, Regional Championships and Development 2. Attendance at these meets is compulsory once the standard for the competition has been achieved.
We train 12.5 hours per week in UL Arena (25 and 50m pools). 10.5 Hours are in the water 2 hours are S&C training in the Gym. While technique is still one of the primary focuses of this squad, swimmers can expect to cover between 2 and 4 kilometres per session and as such should be at a sufficient standard to achieve this with good technique.
Our timetable from March 2nd 2020 is as follows:
Kick Board, Pull Buoy, Fins, Water bottle, Hat & Goggles.
Snorkel (try to find one with a purge valve to expel water – Demo of Purge Valve)
Parents are assigned pool duty in a shared capacity with the A&C Squads within a rota which use updated monthly and is available online.
