Squad System

Our comprehensive Squad System enables swimmers in the competition section of the Club to train at a standard and frequency that matches their ability and ambition.

By developing technique, strength and stamina, the squad system with the Killerwhales prepares swimmers for competitive ASA licenced swimming events. Land training is included in the sessions for squads one and two and all swimmers are expected to take advantage of the many available swim sessions at various pools in the area.There are a number of Galas attended throughout the season at different levels from local club competitions to regional and national open meets.

As a member of the squad system swimmers will be working towards qualification for the Essex County Championships, the London District Championships and National Championships.

But its not just all hard work - The squads are rewarded throughout the year with lots of extra activities like camping trips, fancy dress swims, and disco nights, so that our swimmers can develop and bond as a team, ready for supporting each other in competition.
