What do all the various squads mean?

Learn To Swim program (Mini Marlin) - These are our youngest and least experienced swimmers. The lessons for these are held at Heanor and Alfreton, initially in the teaching pool, then in the main pool when they are sufficiently able. The Learn To Swim Program follows stage 1-7 of the ASA National Plan for swimming.

Pre-competition swimmers - These swimmers continue with the ASA National Plan, working on stage 8-10. At the same time they are introduced to the racing techniques of starts, turns and finishes.

Junior Squad - Predominantly aged between 9 and 12, these are the swimmers that represent the club at the Notts and Derbys junior swimming League each spring, Four Towns Galas and other Inter Club Galas. They will also work towards representing the Club at the ASA County Championship Events which are held twice a year.
As these swimmers are now quite experienced, more focus is given to coaching rather than teaching, with lots of work on racing technique. They train together on a Tuesday & Sunday evening to help to establish a team identity. The more experienced of these will also swim with the senior squad on a Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evening.

Senior Squad - these are our most able swimmers aged 13 and over, they swim on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and the later sessions on Fridays and Sundays.

Masters - For mature swimmers of 25 plus who enjoy the camaraderie of the early Sunday and late Wednesday sessions.

 

Land Training - We run 2 sessions of land training in Belper Lesiure Centre on a sunday evening for the Sunday session B & C swimmers.
First session runs from 5:00 to 5:45, second session from 6:00 to 7:00.
