Squad timetable

Squad swimming is a great way to develop your accomplishments in swimming and your enjoyment of the sport. In a group setting, many swimmers find they can improve their fitness and pace and bond with other swimmers through individual and relay events.

Our dedicated and experienced coaches help swimmers of all abilities develop their potential and improve their technique, motivation and mindsets.

Churchie Aquatics offers swimming squads for swimmers interested in improving their swimming fitness or competitive ranking. This includes social swimming, sports performance training and swimming up to an elite level. Within each squad are a choice of training sessions with recommendations for the optimum number of weekly sessions to develop the stamina to compete at set levels. Both our 25 and 50 metre pools are utilised across all training squads for all representative levels..

An added bonus of joining one of our swim squads is that any squad member has access to our onsite, state-of-the-art gymnasium.
