The National Squad provides coaching and opportunities to athletes aged between 13 -18 prepared to compete at State and National level. Swimmers in this group will attend a minimum of 8 pool sessions per week including strength training as determined by the Head Coach, based on age, personal goals and ability. The multi-stroke/multi-event philosophy is still important with increases in training speed and intensity.
Members in this group will maintain attitudes and behaviors that are parallel with swimming excellence. Swimmers will commit to training and attendance at a level satisfactory to the Head Coach.
Athletes must demonstrate high levels of commitment and performance to maintain their place within the squad with squad re-selections completed after the major performance championships throughout the year.
