Squad Information

At IAP we offer three squad levels as well as Fit Squad: 

Junior Squad

45 minute to one hour sessions focussing on stroke technique and developing endurance.  Junior squad members are encouraged to train two sessions per week and can attend a maxium of 3 sessions per week.

Intermediate Squad

One to one and a half hour squad sessions once again allowing more scope to work over longer distances for the teenage swimmer. Stroke technique is still a very important tool in developing skills. Intermediate squad members are encouraged to train two sessions per week and can attend a maxium of 4 sessions per week.

Target Squad

One and a half hour to two sessions that may incorporate a dry-land component (stretching, fitness and strength work). This squad aims to continue stroke and skill development to work towards qualifying for state level competitions. Swimmers are encouraged to be competitive members of Swimming Victoria and to regularly attend external meets with the IAP team. Target squad members are encouraged to train three sessions per week and can attend a maxium of 6 sessions per week.

Senior Squad

Two hour sessions that usually incorporates a 15-30 minute dry-land component (stretching, fitness and strength work). This squad aims to continue stroke and skill development in order to progress swimmers to qualifying for state and national level competitions. Swimmers are encouraged to be competitive members of Swimming Victoria and to regularly attend external meets with the IAP team. Senior squad members are encouraged to train four sessions per week and can attend a maxium of 9 sessions per week.

Fit Squad

Fit squad is for swimmers who would like to train for fitness and not compete at external swim meets. Fit Squad swimmers generally train with the Senior Squad, and may do up to three sessions per week.

 

 

So that all swimmers get the most out of all training session, it is important that they:

1. Are punctual and present on the pool deck 5 minutes prior to the start of the session.

2. Bring their swimming equipment including cap and goggles.

3. Bring a full drink bottle.  

During the warmer seasons, swimmers without drink bottles may be refused training as a strenuous session may put them at risk of dehydration.

Should a swimmer arrive late, it is at the discretion of the Coach whether the swimmer can join the session.
