Strength & Speed Squad

Swim at a high level and train for competition

We have created the “Strength & Speed Squad” for swimmers who would like to swim at a high level for up to 5 sessions per week.   This squad is aimed at teenage swimmers and older who want to stay in the sport, but do not want the intense commitment of the Senior Squad. Typically swimmers in this group are training for school competition or fitness.

This group is focused on competition training and is directed at improving all strokes. Competition skills such as starts, turns and finishes are worked on. Swimmers in this group are strongly encouraged to join the Southside Penrhos Wesley Swimming Club and compete to their highest possible level. Swimmers are expected to compete at State Championships if they have qualifying times. Advice can be sought from the coaching staff as to what competition is appropriate.


We run our swimming programmes across two seasons - Summer and Winter.


Our winter season times run from the 1st of May 2019, through to the 11thof October 2019.

All of the winter sessions are run at the Wesley Pool
