Squad Gold
  • 60
  • Duration

In this squad level the techniques developed in Squad Silver are consolidated and new skills are introduced in each of the four strokes.  The goals of this group are:

  • To develop new stroke skills
  • To significantly improve fitness by introducing longer and more demanding swims
  • To continue to develop racing skills
  • To become proficient in the use of the pace clock
  • To introduce specific periods of endurance, skill and competition training

Depending on the type of session this group will swim between 1800m - 2500m.  Fitness sessions, for example will cover a greater distance in comparison to a sprint session.

Now's the time to be a 'State Swim Challenger'.
