Age Group Development Squad 1
Our Age Group Development Squad 1 is designed to offer swimmers an opportunity to train and compete at an Age Group level. Focusing on all areas of stroke technique and skills, this part of the programme will help develop swimmers aged between the ages of 7 and 11 years. The main emphasis is on fun and enjoyment of the sport. Competition in local swimming leagues and graded meets is also an important part of the AGD 1 swimmers’ development. Swimmers must also compete in the Annual Club Championships. They are expected to attend a minimum of 2 sessions per week.

Age Group Development Squad 2
Swimmers can progress from AGD 1 to AGD 2. The focus remains on technique and skill development whilst swimmers are introduced to an aerobic training programme. This squad is for swimmers aged 9 to 12 years. Again, fun combined with high level coaching make this part of the programme a success. Swimmers must also compete in the Annual Club Championships. They are expected to attend a minimum of 2 sessions per week.
