Mini Squad Swimming

Seadragonz mini-squad is exactly that!  A mini taste of what training in a squad is like.

The intent of the mini squad at Seadragonz is to try that style of swimming and if you like it, then find a swimming club that works for you.  Squad classes are not a lesson and teachers should will not be doing corrective work, but simply doing drills that improve stroke quality.

 Important things to note about the squad classes

  • They should always be a short term (max 3 months) situation as a tester/teaser only.
  • Seadragonz is an unsuitable venue for realistic squad classes

– The water is way too hot, not allowing the students to increase speed

– The pool is 1/3rd the length of an Olympic Pool so students don’t get the opportunity to practice a true long distance of swimming

– Participants in squads need to dive.  Seadragonz cannot teach diving due to the shallow depth of the pool

– Squads must tumble turn at the end of each lap.  While possible at Seadragonz, the depth doesn’t allow for true turning practice

– Students should be training under a qualified squad coach.  Seadragonz has awesome teachers, and some with some squad training capabilities, however to get the best from swimming at this level, a qualified coach is necessary.

    • A common myth is that students at swim clubs must compete.  This is not necessarily true.  Most clubs have a club night once a week, where the intent is to better your own swimming and times.  Competition while encouraged, is optional.

    Seadragonz has had rave reviews from the swimming coaches at ARC, Armadale Swim Club and Riverton Swim Club.  The coaches say they love having our past students, as they all have beautiful strokes that don’t need correction, only refinement.
