Development Squad

“Never give up on something you really want, it is difficult to wait, but even more difficult to regret.”

Learning the club and squad values, as well as how to train and be a member of a team working towards a common goal of qualifying for DivII and Development Squad.

#alwaysmovingforward

This contains two groups of swimmers with different needs.

Group 1: Swimmers learning the club and squad values, as well as how to train and be a member of a team working towards a common goal of qualifying for DivII and Performance Squad.

Group 2: Swimmers qualified for the Performance Squad but need the flexibility of the Development Squad to enjoy and excel at more than one sport. This group of Development swimmers might contain an Opens qualified swimmer who has every intention of competing at that meet. However, they are also heavily involved with Water polo, Surf Life Saving, Netball and playing in the school orchestra. Due to this they can only commit to three sessions a week. We encourage and celebrate this diversity. We believe that this squad will offer a mechanism for them to stay involved, enjoy and be successful in swimming among like-minded peers.

OBJECTIVE

To give them the ability to race competitively at Div II, NAG’s, NZ Short Course and NZ Opens.

Criteria

·       12 and Over

·       ASA Level 1 OR2 Qualified swimmer

Squad Standards

·       Applying yourself in all training's by giving 100%

·       Attend a minimum of 3 of the six available sessions and communicate fully to the coach about how your other commitments may impact on your attendance. If these commitments cease and you can train 8 times a week then you should aim / expect to move to the Performance Squad.

·       Consideration is given to how other commitments may prevent attendance at all the meets during a season but it is an expectation that you will swim competitively when available. (We are a swimming club for competitive swimmers).

·       Maintaining and adhering to prescribed training intervals in pool

·       Be role models for our younger club swimmers

Fees
