Intermediate Squad

Focusing on skill development of freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly while preparing for competition.

This group focuses on freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke, with butterfly in short efforts. In this group the focus is still very much on skill development with competition skills beginning to be taught

Swimmers in this group are strongly encouraged to start racing.  This can be done at Dragon Racing and/or the Southside Penrhos Wesley Swimming Club. We believe competitive swimming at a low level is important to the swimmers development at this stage.
