Junior Squads

Our Junior Squad program is designed for children 4 to 8 years old (age is calculated based on May 1) with an interest in starting competitive swimming

The program was created to help familiarize both swimmers and parents with the world of competitive swimming. This program offers a lower level of commitment and places a bigger emphasis on FUN!

This program focuses on:

  • learning the fundamentals of competitive swimming stroke technique;

  • establishing and maintaining a high level of comfort in and around the water;

  • improving balance, co-ordination and general motor skills;

  • practicing, listening and learning techniques.
