Note: completing the application form does not provide a guaranteed place in the squad program.

 

SWIM ASSESSMENTS:

All swimmers at the start of each term are required to undertake an assessment.

Returning Swimmers: This is to determine which lane/group you will be placed in.

New Swimmers: This is to ensure the program is right for you and then to determine which lane/group you will be placed in.

An assessment involves coming down for a free session. You will hop in with the squad, swim the full session allowing both yourself and the coaches to ensure this squad is right for you.

Note: all new swimmers require an assessment which is undertaken by participating in a normal swim session where space permits. After swim assessments our head coaches will talk with swimmers and offer a place in the program (dependent on assessment outcome and squad space availability).

Assessments cannot take place unless an application form has been completed.
