Development Squads

Development 1

 

This group caters for six to nine year olds who must be able to complete one width of the pool in frontcrawl and backcrawl and will introduces swimmers to the deep end for the first time.  Technique will be taught on all four strokes and this will also incorporate simple dives and turns. Promotion from this group will be based on qualifying times – the coaches at their discretion may promote a swimmer they feel is showing potential in another stroke other than freestyle. For any other information you require you can contact Johnny at 086 8358750.

 

Development 2

 

This group caters for swimmers with ages ranging from ten to fifteen years of age who can comfortably complete 200 metres. All aspects of swimming will be included and this group is ideal for anyone who want to race, earn promotion or just want to stay fit. Swimmers in this group are entitled to compete in Regional Development Meets and information regarding these competitions will be given out by the coach on poolside or via the squad WhatsApp group. There is no obligation to compete at these galas as we understand not everyone enjoys competition.
