Developmental Team

The Developmental Team is for those swimmers who have either completed Level 4 lessons or can demonstrate the ability to swim 10y across the width of the pool in freestyle and backstroke. This team concentrates on developing stroke technique and combining it with breath control to increase distances to 25y +. It is ideal for swimmers who do not wish to commit the time or do not have the endurance to join the competitive entry level age group - Sparks but would like to build their ability to do so!
