After our lesson programme has been completed, as an alternative to competitive training, our Club Squad has a Sunday session 4-5pm at Godalming for swimmers aged 11+ who swim for fitness rather than train for competition.This is ideal for children who:
The session is led by a qualified coach, with a set designed to build stamina and involve a variety of strokes (but only a little butterfly). There is some feedback, but it is not a lesson, so participants must also be able to swim to NPTS Stage 7 standard.
For anyone wishing to swim a second session, we offer the option to swim in selected competitive squad sessions; this involves doing the same set as the other swimmers, so it’s necessary to swim to the required standard. This is also available for current squad members who decide to stop competing and/or can’t meet the full training commitment.
Members of Club Squad can take part in internal club competitions: this is entirely optional and there’s no pressure to participate if you’re not interested in competing.
