Coach: Mel Klamt
The Nuna Youth Squad provides opportunities for athletes primarily aged between 13-18 years to plan, prepare and perform at state and national level competitions. Nuna Youth Squad swimmers consistently attend 5-8 sessions per week with the required number of sessions determined by the Coach based on age, personal goals/aspirations, background and ability.
Swimmers will develop all aspects of stroke technique, fitness and race skills with a focus on race strategy as they prepare for their competitions.
The following training schedule is for SCHOOL TERM PERIODS ONLY
School holiday timetables (when available) can be found HERE

Squad Training Fees 2016/17 season
Nuna Youth squad training fee for those attending 6 or more sessions per week (as set by the Coach): $195.00 (GST inclusive) per month
Nuna Youth squad training fee for those attending 5 or less sessions per week (as set by the Coach): $170.00 (GST inclusive) per month
Participation in the squad system is considered to be an annual involvement; therefore the total fees for the year have been averaged out to produce the monthly amount, with the same monthly fee being payable for all 12 months of the year.
Fees will be charged regardless of a swimmers attendance with the exception of prolonged absences of more than 2 weeks through injury, illness or family commitments (see below for more info).
Squad fees provide swimmers with coach instruction at training and competition, dryland and/or strength & conditioning instruction depending on age and pool entry and/or lease fees at all training venues.
The squad fees are heavily subsidised by our Just Swimming learn to swim program
Adjustments to Squad Accounts
If a swimmer suffers any serious injuries or illnesses, eg fractured limbs or glandular fever, which necessitate a prolonged absence from training of more than 2 weeks, consideration may be given to adjusting the account in the following month.
If your squad account needs adjustment, or there is a problem with the account, please complete the Squad Fee Adjustment form, and return it to the NSC Finance Manager, Louise Martin. Louise will work through any adjustments with you.
In general all charges will stand and any corrections will be made in the following month.
Year 12 Students
Nunawading Swimming Club is committed to working with Year 12 students to ensure they can continue their swimming and study through Year 12. While coaches will work with the athletes on individual plans, the Club also offers a discounted fee for Year 12 students.
Students completing Year 12 over one year will receive a discount of 30% on their monthly fee from February to November in the Year they complete Year 12.

The equipment swimmers will require are flippers, goggles (plus a spare pair), kickboard, pool buoy, paddles, band, snorkel, swim costume & cap. We ask swimmers to be at training 15min prior to the commencement time, so they can complete the required dryland activities and be ready to dive in on time.

- Club polo shirt
