Development Squads

Development (Bronze, Silver and Gold)
This is the Squad for our younger swimmers who are in their early years of competition. Swimmers in this Squad are typically aged between 8-12 and have made the decision to go down the competitive swimming pathway. Sessions are based on Skill and Technique, with aerobic work and basic speed. All swimmers have good commitment levels and are regularly racing in meets set out by the coaching staff. The ethos is to have fun whilst developing key skills and fitness levels. This Squad will hopefully lead to Juggernaut if swimmers have the right ability, commitment and maturity to train effectively to a very high standard.
