Mini Squad Academy
Welcome to the next level of your swimming career...
After Swim School, children can join our Mini Squads Academy and take their swimming to the next exciting level. Mini Squads is an advanced program that further develops swimming strokes and introduces children to swimming as a sport.
All swimmers in our Mini Squads Levels are invited to participate in regular time trials. Time trials give swimmers the opportunity to set personal times for a particular set of strokes and distances and see if their swimming meets the times to progress to the next level.
Parafield Gardens Swim School is proud to be affiliated with the Western Aquatic Swimming Club (W.A.S.C). The W.A.S.C is based out of the Largs Bay Swim Centre and they invite all of our squad swimmers to join and compete as one big team. Please see your coach for information on joining the club.
Swimmers in Mini Squads may join the W.A.S.C at any stage. By joining with the club you become part of a swim team and can enter swim meets across Adelaide. This is a great entry level to all swimmers who want to take up swimming competitively.
Upon completion of the Gold Squad, swimmers have the opportunity to move full time to Largs Bay. As part of the W.A.S.C swimmers will progress through the squad groups from Gold, State and National.
Swimmers will need their own flippers & kickboard for all squad levels. Swimmers who succesfully complete the test set or have joined the program and can succesfully complete the test set with good form will move to the next squad level. The objectives of each squad level is to continue to buid on swimmers technique while teaching them about different training sets that prepare them to compete. Swimmers will learn to use the pace clock, correct turns and starts while improving their stroke and endurance.
