Junior Squads

The Junior Squad program provides opportunities for athletes to strengthen the foundations of competitive technique and skill.  The Junior Squad caters for athletes aged primarily 9 to 11 years who have a proven record of participation in competition swimming.

Junior squad sessions continue to focus on the education of competitive technique and race skills in an environment that encourages consistency, learning and enjoyment of racing.
Swimmers initially begin attending 2 sessions per week, before building up to 3 within their first term in the squad. Swimmers may build further to 4 sessions per week at coach discretion based on age, ability and attitude.

Junior squads are run within the Wesley and Tintern satellite programs

COMMUNICATION

Two of the most important aspects of being involved in the Nunawading Swimming Club is good communication between the coach, swimmer and parents and the effective distribution of information to families by the coach and the club.

Regular meetings will be held for each squad where the coach will provide information to parents and swimmers including competition schedules.

If a swimmer or parent has any questions or concerns, they are asked to speak to their coach.  If after working through the issue there is still a problem, they are asked to contact the Head Coach, Dean Bryant at dean.bryant@nunawadingswimmingclub.com

The Club has a number of ways of communicating with you.
