This squad is designed for those swimmers 12 years and over who wish to improve their swimming for pool, open water and surf without the same level of commitment required for Junior and Age Competitive swimming squads.

 

SQUAD FOCUS

This squad is aimed at swimmers 12 and over, and is designed for highly competitive athletes who want to manage their own training load.

8 sessions will be on offer, our recommendation is that athletes in this squad swim at least 5 sessions a week to maximise potential and performance.

Cross Competitive is expected to compete at both meets run by Geelong Swimming Club at Kardinia Pool and are encouraged to race at least once a month.

Swimmers are invited and encouraged to attend camps.
