Training

Our training schedule allows the swimmers, based on their level of commitment to grow with the program. Though we do not specify a minimum attendance expectation, we do have swimmers who truly want to commit themselves to the sport of swimming and attend training sessions more than five times per week. Many of these swimmers started with our fun Club Night program and then started attending training sessions as well. Others started swimming two or three sessions per week, then were inspired to train more often.

Training sessions are offered as per the program and pool availability, Monday to Saturday to club members. This allows swimmers to choose sessions that suit their training expectations and other commitments.

Before starting training sessions with the club, swimmers must be able to swim 50m free, back, breast, and 25m fly, and have an assessment with the Coach who will assign the swimmer to a training group (squad)based on the swimmer’s capability.

Prior to the first day of training, parents will be asked to fill out a form indicating their goals for their children and their expectations of the program. Coach/parent communication is important. Every swimmer receives personal attention to help them achieve their goals.

The club is able to support swimmers who want to make a full commitment to swimming. When this occurs they are expected to attend most of the training sessions offered for their squad group. They are also encouraged to participate in as many meets as possible to enable them to reach their goal be it becoming an ACT Championship Finalist, a NSW Country, or NSW State finalist, or swimming for Australia.
