Dolphins & Junior Development

Junior Swimming Squads

Primarily junior aged squads are where we start to introduce a greater training component to the technical foundation provided in the previous squads.
 
The goal of these squads is to develop high quality technical proficiency and skills specifically to maximise long term swimming potential.

Swimmers at this level would be identifying appropriate competitions in which to compete with some aiming to qualify for and compete at Swimming New Zealand’s Junior Zonal Festival.

These squads training is based around the 200m Individual Medley event and are working towards the following outcomes.

  • Increased efficiency in all four strokes
  • Ability to execute skilled turns and starts in race situations
  • Develop a strong kick in all four strokes
  • Ability to race across a variety of events and distances
  • Have fun learning about the sport

Due to maintenance being carried out at our Waterworld Facilities, we are working from a temporary timetable with all squad training is being held at the Boys High School Pool.

Although we are at Level one, we are still  taking all practical measures to ensure our swimmers, coaches and team stay safe.

Members, please contact your coach if you have queries.
