Changes to Junior and Intermediate Squad

From the beginning of our Summer 2023/2024 Squad Program there will be some important changes to both our Junior and Intermediate Squads.

Due to feedback from coaches and families we have reviewed and restructured our junior and intermediate squads to cater for our current swimmers needs. 


Junior Squad:

Due to swimmers reaching this level of swimming at a much younger age we have seen the need to limit this squad to 2x45min sessions per week. Saturday once a week swimmers will remain unchanged at 1x1hr session.


Intermediate Squad:

The standard sessions for this squad will now be 2x1hr sessions per week with an optional extension session for those that would like to swim 3 times a week. 


Term 2 2024:

In the past we have always taken April off for our younger squads, but with fantastic weather through April/May and most of June we would like to take advantage of this and continue squads running on the back of our summer program.

With a lot of schools running school and interschool carnivals in early Term 2 we feel we can get these swimmers ready to race at these carnivals.

This would mean that we will be taking a break in July and then returning in August.


We hope that these changes will better serve our swimming community.
