Swimming Philosophy

Swimming is a technique driven sport. An athlete who possesses adequate core body strength and a range of movement (flexibility) can at a young age learn quality stroke mechanics and receive reinforcement with low intensity skill based training.

Not every swimmer can be a winner, but with application and hard work each can achieve the best that is within him or herself. One must always remember, Practice does not make Perfect but PERFECT Practice does make PERFECT.

Bearing this in mind our objective is to develop swimmers younger than 12 years as 200 metre Individual Medley (I.M.) competitors. Age group swimmers aged 13 and 14 years to be developed as 400metre I.M., middle distance and distance freestyle competitors. The theory behind developing young swimmers as 200m I.M. competitors is that they will develop FOUR strong strokes and a good endurance base.
