Swimming Squads 

Wellington Swimming Club is made up of a number of different squads and these are based on swimmers’ skills and abilities.

A new swimmer will be asked to attend a trial session on a Friday to be assessed as to which group they will be asked to join.

There are a number of factors that make up the decision as to which group a swimmer will join, this includes fitness, commitment to train & stroke technique.

Our groups start at Development (limited availability in this group) where children are able to do 3 strokes to a 50m level, f/c, b/c and breastroke, and go through to Squad which includes County, Regional & National swimmers.
