EC Squads

EC Squad program provides a constant flow of swimmers into each of the squads in the competitive and fitness programs.  The development and training of swimmers is aimed at maintaining a competitive swimming club with high levels of performance and achievements.

This is achieved by:

  • Building confidence
  • Developing the mental strength of the swimmer & a positive attitude toward training
  • Constantly monitoring the dynamics of workload, sports results and fitness
  • Developing strategic thinkers


Training is available in 6 different squads, training times differ for each squad. All swimmers must train with their allocated squad.

Squad Promotion

Promotion between squads is up to the discretion of the coaches in consultation with the support group (eg parents).  The head coach makes the final decision and is extremely qualified and understands the progression and pathway of swimmers.  It is imperative that the support group understands and backs the swimming program.

Please see the Aquatic Centre Manager if you would like to book in a time with your coach to discuss further.
