PLEASE NOTE - Squads will run as NORMAL over the Friday March 1st - Monday March 4th Long Weekend unless we have advised otherwise. This also includes Dragon Racing.
Once swimmers have completed Stage 8 in lessons they are eligible to join our squad program. The squads run 11 months a year with all swimmers having April off. It is a continuous group unlike the 10 week blocks in lessons.

Progressing to the next squad level!
To advance to the next squad level a swimmer should be showing great enthusiasm and regularly be near the front of the line. If they are strong in all areas the coaching staff will be considering them to go up. If swimmers are eager to go up they should ask their coach how they are performing. We have test sets that we will also use to determine when swimmers are ready to progress.
If you are going away for more than a month then you can withdraw and re enrol when you come back. In this case we do not hold your position. If you would like your place held, normal quarterly fees apply.
Girls attending or enrolled at Penrhos College are able to attend our Junior and Intermediate Squads at Penrhos College Pool commencing Term 4. These run from the start of Term 4 through to the end of Term 1.
Squads run through School Holidays with the only days missed being when the Wesley pool is closed — Christmas, New Years, Boxing Day, Australia Day and Good Friday.
Fees are usually 3 monthly (quarterly) with the exception of May and June. If you start part way through a quarter fees are pro rata.
