Geraldton Amateur Swimming Club has five squads. Swimmers are placed in a squad after an assessment with a coach. Please refer to the guidelines below for a description of each squad. The decision of the best squad for your child is determined by our coaching team.
Final criteria on squad placement for your child is subjective. These criteria will include, but is not limited to training history, training ability, endurance, skill levels, rate of improvement, motivation and commitment to training. Click the links below to find out more about each squad.
Meeting with your coach to develop training plans, goals and review performance is an important part of training, however, it’s not practical to have these discussions on pool deck whilst coaches are in training sessions. Our coaches are more than happy to arrange a suitable time to meet with you, alternatively please also feel free to email email@example.com with any concerns or questions regarding your child’s squad placement or progress.
Please ask your coach if you are not sure which squad you are in. Your coach will assign you to the squad best suited to your needs and ability.
