Gold squad meets 6 times per week for 120 minutes (2Hrs) in the water and 15-30 minutes of dryland training. During this phase, gold swimmers are introduced to advanced training methods and have the opportunity to swim some practices with our senior swimmers to help foster a fun and competitive environment.
The main emphasis is on the retention of the fundamentals learnt in the bronze and silver squads. Swimmers should capitalize on what they have learnt as they are introduced to the latest and most advanced skills and drills as race strategy is refined before competition preparedness is introduced.
The gold group is required to participate in all hosted meets and one end of season (championship) meet per year. Coaches aim to continue the spirit of a team environment and strive to create a fun and passionate group.
Require Kit: kickboard, short blade fins, competitive swimming snorkel, pull buoy, paddles, yoga mat
