The Club’s new Junior Masters programme launches week commencing 13th August! 

 

The squad will have a dedicated Lead Coach and will offer four sessions per week (with an optional morning), overseen by the Head Coach. 

Junior Masters is designed for swimmers who wish to continue to challenge and develop their swimming without a set minimum weekly attendance requirement or performance parameters. For those who wish to compete in a more relaxed and social way, we will be encouraging entry to appropriate competitions (probably 2-3 per year, including Club Championships). Competing will remain completely optional.

Our aim for this squad is to deliver a level of swim training which suits the needs of the swimmers within the programme but which is targeted at continuing to develop the swimmers’ fitness and technique, encouraging them to enjoy the benefits of swimming without as much commitment as our main competitive pathway.

The programme will also complement other aquatic disciplines such as Water Polo and Triathlon. Our objective is that swimmers will remain in this squad until they are around 17 years before moving on to our adult Masters programme, therefore retaining them within the sport for a longer period of time.

 

Over time, we will work in conjunction with our Senior Masters programme, incorporating opportunities to work together to deliver race nights and other events.

One night per week Junior Masters will swim back to back with Senior Masters in order to help foster the pathway between the two and the Junior Masters coach will develop and strengthen links between the two programmes.

 

If you are interested in finding out more about this programme or if you’d like to join the squad please email squad administrator Jenn MacLeod (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) for more information.
