Transition Squads

These are the squads for the very youngest in our club who have just moved up from the lessons program. Swimmers in this group generally are aged between 7-10 years and have just taken their first steps in the world of competitive swimming training. Sessions are based on learning the Skills and Technique needed before they take the plunge in a racing environment. Not only will swimmers learn these skills they will also learn discipline in the lane, reading the pace clock and to be able to train in a focused and fun manner. This squad will hopefully progress onto Development should they decide competitive swimming is the route for them and they show signs of good attitude and commitment.

These extra sessions will be primarily to practice starts from the blocks and turns in preparation for the Club Championships.
I hope all our swimmers and their families have a good summer break, mentally and physically recharging the batteries. It is however important to keep base fitness levels up and come back firing and even more motivated for the 2019-2020 season. I will look forward to welcoming each and every one of our swimmers back in September, I am sure the new season will be our best ever. Lots and lots to look forward too, nothing could be better than training and racing for Winsford Swim Team.
