Junior Swimming Squads


Children who have graduated from our Learn to Swim Program move up to our Junior Squads as they have mastered the basic skills of swimming all four strokes.

We have five junior squad levels and each level focuses on the further development of skills in the four strokes together with competitive starts and turns and an introduction to squad training.

Junior squad lessons run for 30 minutes to one hour in our 25m squad pool.

Breakfast is available for squad swimmers at the cafe for sessions before School. We offer a choice of either two thick slices of raisin toast or plain toast (toaster provided).

Junior Squads run continuously throughout the year except for weekends during school holidays. Additional Intensive School Holiday Programs and Clinics run during the school holidays.
