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 of all strokes and distances within the pool. This squad builds on and further developments the techniques taught in previous squads, with the addition of increasing individual race skills, tactics, aerobic and anerobic capacity.

The program offers 7 swim sessions a week (3 mornings and 4 afternoons) with four 30minute land based exercise sessions. Each swimmer is encouraged to meet regularly with the coach to discuss their individual goals and it is recommend for those swimmers who have the goal of competing at a high performance level that they train 6 or 7 swim sessions per week and compete at targeted meets throughout the year.

The expectation within the squad is that all swimmers are Southside Penrhos Wesley Swimming Club members and registered with SWA. That if they have state or national qualifying times that they compete at those events and are available for relays, additionally all swimmers in this squad need to be available for club premierships.
