Speed Swimming Program 2021

The Speed Swimming program aims to develop swimmers for competitions by improving technique, building strength and endurance, and developing skills required to be a competitive speed swimmer.

  2. Minimum 1 season with Development group – this is the place to gain endurance, fitness and a sense of what the full team experience is like. Developmental meets are offered to gain experience and work towards A times ** speak to Head Coaches if you are unfamiliar with A and B times
  3. Join the Competitive group – 2 training sessions per day – this extra time commitment is essential for growth as a summer speed swimmer.
