These squads, currently available at our Mt. Eden, Kelston and Massey venues, are for anyone who wants to improve their fitness and their swimming skills.
While we may have triathletes who have competed in Ironman events, or masters swimmers competing in pool and ocean swims, we also have swimmers who just want to keep fit. Let’s face it, it’s tough to swim on your own, to set your own programme and to push yourself along. These groups make that process easier and fun.
Our experienced coaches will discuss with you your goals and help you to achieve them. They will provide programs which are structured to improve technique, endurance and speed. And swimming with other athletes makes it a positive and friendly environment to workout in.
The groups cater for participation in all aquatic past times from triathlon, to surf lifesaving, masters, ocean swimming and general fitness. As a guide, distances covered during the one hour sessions range from 1200m to 3500m. If you haven’t swum in a group before, or it’s been a while the coaching staff will look after you while you get the hang of the program.
You will be supported and encouraged as you progress towards your goals and make new friends in the process. Because we have the use of the whole pool we can cater for all levels of swimming skill and fitness and as you progress continue to challenge you.
The overall aim of the programmes run is to have fun, meet new people and enjoy the process.
The pool swim shops have all the swimming accessories required and a range of goggles and swimwear. As a member of the team you are eligible to a discount on these products.
The programmes run on a quarterly basis, January to March etc. but you can join at any time. We offer a free, no obligation, trial. You don’t need to book, just pop in and chat with the coach before having a go. The only time the sessions are not run is during public holidays.
There is some flexibility which allows swimmers to swim at more than one site if this suits your work or other commitments, please discuss this with your coach.
