These squads provide athletes with tailored training and support that will improve the necessary stroke and technical skills required to be competitive during training and racing. In the higher squads athletes will be introduced to aerobic training which will have an emphasis on quality of technique and skills (starts, turns, underwater phases and finishes). Athletes will be required to be committed and be able to apply themselves to instruction given by the coaching staff. These squads will be targeting participation in Club, Junior League, Local and ultimately County/District competitions. Athletes in these squads should be looking to constantly improve on skills, technique and performance and if ready, be considered for the Competitive Squads.
