Joining Squads from lessons
If you have been told by your teacher that are moving from lessons to squads congratulations you have reached a swimming standard that means you can join the Junior squad.
Within the squads there are a range of sessions through the week as detailed here. Swimmers are split across a series of lanes and the coach will provide a schedule to follow on the whiteboards. Depending on the time of year or nature of session the coach may concentrate on different types of training focussing on specific skills or building speed or stamina within the pool.
We aim to start sessions as soon as possible once the pool it set up with it’s lane ropes and flags so please ensure you are ready for training being on poolside 5 minutes before session is due to start with goggles and drink. (Kickboards, fins and pullbuoys are provided by the club).
Could you please fill in the online form on our club website to enable us to register your child with the ASA. The membership form can be downloaded from ‘The Club’ section of the website.
Squad fees are paid by monthly standing order (1stor 15th of Month) and the cost for junior squads is £21.50 per month irrespective of how often you swim. The fees are payable as a standing order into our club account. This fee includes any travel to galas and all ASA Registration fees.
Joining Junior squad is the first step to becoming a competitive swimmer and you will need to keep a regular eye on the website and facebook page for information regarding forthcoming competitions/galas and club events, as well as any session updates.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact either one of the coaches on firstname.lastname@example.org or a committee member at the pool.
