Age Performance Squad

Train for competition, aim for excellence.

The age performance squad is for swimmers whose focus is aimed at competing at an age state and age national level. The programs training focus is designed to develop well rounded swimmers for all events in all strokes and distances within the pool. The squad builds on and further develops the techniques taught in previous squads, with the addition of increasing individual race skills, tactics, aerobic and anaerobic capacity.

The program offers 8 swim sessions a week (3 mornings and 5 afternoons) Each swimmer is encouraged to meet regularly with the coach to discuss their individual goals and it is recommended that they train 6 to 7 swim sessions per week (25-30 per month) and compete at targeted meets throughout the year.

Swimmers in this squad must be SSPW members and compete at State and National Championships if qualifying times have been achieved.

For those interested in Strength and Conditioning program to supplement their pool sessions, we have organised Athlete Alliance to provide this, please see below.
