Junior Development

For Ages 9 - 12 Years on or before 31st August

This Squad is for those swimmers who are either moving from learn to swim or currently do not want to commit to more than two training sessions a week.


The club will arrange a trial for the swimmer following a recommendation from their swim teacher or based on their previous swimming background

The squad will work on developing key skills for competitive swimming which include


  • Underwater Fish Kick

  • Hand entry position 

  • Elbow high catch positioin

  • Arm and hand recovery

  • Efficient effective kick

  • Competitive starts and turns


Once swimmers are established in the club they may be encouraged to move to the White + squad which will provide them with additional sessions to improve. This will be the swimmers choice and no movement will be made until they are ready.

Swimmers in the squad are expected to compete at Club and Open swim meets. They will also need to be willing to be part of a team if selected, which will take part in events such as the Lincolnshire Junior League, Lincs League, Areana League etc.

All swimmers will be working toward achieving County, Regional and National Qualifying times for their age group

Once the reach the age of 13 then they will then move into one of the two Youth Squads
