The Squad Program at Kingswim is an opportunity for our Graduate swimmers to further develop and enjoy the sport of swimming. Squad provides children the chance to dip their toes into the water of competitive swimming, in a familiar, friendly environment with a community of other swimmers looking to develop their skills.
It is a great way to build self-confidence and prepare children for school swimming carnivals.
Whilst swimmers will be developing racing skills, lesson plans have been developed to include all the fundamental areas of aquatic education including survival skills, endurance, race skills, technique and fitness. This ensures kids are continuously exposed to and practicing lifesaving skills.
The program focuses are:
- Building endurance and fitness in the water;
- Race skills such as starts, turns and finishes;
- Advanced swimming technique;
- Progressing your personal best times;
- And survival skills.
