Senior Squad

For swimmers age approx. 13 - 18 years.

This is for swimmers that are keen to compete for the club at league and open meets and are either on the journey to meet the criteria for Senior Performance or who are unable to commit to the training demands of 4+ times per week or they don’t meet the criteria to be on the performance squad.

General criteria

  • Legal 200m 3 strokes plus IM (50 Fly)
  • Swim 10x100 Fc on 2.10mins
  • Swim 5x200 Fc on 4
  • Regular, on-going attendance at a minimum of three Squad sessions per week to maintain fitness and ability.
  • Swim for the club when selected to represent Leander at team-based competitions. (80% acceptance is expected)

Squad Movement

Movement from here would be into either Senior Performance (upon ability criteria) or Masters Squad (upon age). Once Swimmers reach 17 years they are able to start attending some of the Masters sessions where appropriate for the individual.
