UWA WEST COASTYOUTH SQUAD

Youth squad swimmers will have the opportunity to train without the commitment to a performance squad program.

  • Junior Blue to Youth Squad (must meet age criteria); Junior Gold to Youth Squad (must meet age criteria)

FAQ – Which training days and how many sessions should my swimmer attend?

  • To improve and achieve best swimming outcomes UWSC recommends swimmers attend regular training sessions at both of our squad training venues HBF Stadium and UWA Aquatic Centre. It is advisable for swimmers to become familiar with both venues, particularly, if they are interested in moving through to UWSC Performance squads.
  • Main set days are: Monday, Thursday (form stroke) and Saturdays.
  • Where possible swimmers should try to attend at least one or two of these days and then other days that fit with their schedule.
  • Swimmers in Youth Squad are encouraged to talk with their coaches about their swimmer goals, from improving in their pool swimming and racing to open water swimming and racing.
  • Suggested Equipment: Swim Cap, Goggles, Fins, Kickboard, Pull Buoy, Front Snorkel, Hand Paddles, Drink Bottle
