This squad is unique and entry to it is by invitation of the Head Coach only (in discussion with the senior coaching team).
To give an opportunity for our young talented swimmers to start on the competitive pathway early enough to be able to get HCASA qualification times from 10/11 yrs. Qualify for SER regionals from age 11/12 and qualify for nationals in accordance with current age bandings.
Age 9-11, willing to do 5 sessions a week and want to achieve targets above but too young or not ready to join Top Squad.
At the completion of the term after the swimmers 12th birthday a decision will be made as to the next step, either going to Sharks, Sharks 2 or Top Squad depending on the development made and criteria being achieved.
