Squad Levels

Here you will find information about our training squads and coaches.

If Parents or swimmers have any questions about the squads they are welcome to contact the Head Swimming Coach, Codie Grimsey via email at: swimcoach@glennie.qld.edu.au

 

Senior Squad:

This level is suitable for a State or National level swimmer or a swimmer wanting to swim at this level. Swimmers in this squad must become a Glennie Gators Swim Club member and attend a minimum of five swim sessions per week. Dryland warmups are conducted before training begins, consisting of core exercises, cardio and shoulder activation work. Swimmers at this level are aiming to achieve Swimming Queensland Club state qualifying times and/or Darling Downs School Swimming Selection. The Senior Squad train: Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings (from 5:30am to 7:00am) and every weekday afternoon (4:45pm to 6:30pm).

Fitness Level:

The Fitness Squad caters for those swimmers under 18 years of age who still love to swim but aren't neccesarily interested at competing at a high level. Many of the sporting groups such as the Glennie Water Polo Teams will train in this squad to increase their level of fitness. Coach Jeff will write a set for you to follow and still maintain a level of stroke correction. The Fitness Squad train: Tuesday and Thursday mornings (from 5:30am to 7:00am), Saturday morning from 6.30am to 7.45am and Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoon (4:45pm to 6:30pm).

Development Squad:

This level aims to refine skills through implementing new drills to the young swimmer and refine the skills in each of the four strokes. As the swimmer physically adapts to better swimming skills we also work on increased endurance. Swimmers are encouraged to swim two to three times per week to gain the full benefit of the program. Swimmers at this level are encouraged to become members of the Glennie Gators Swim Club and attend club nights and specified swim meets. Swimmers at this level are aiming to achieve Swimming Queensland Club state qualifying times and/or Darling Downs School Swimming Selection. Squad trains Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings (6.30am to 7.30am) and also every weekday afternoon (3.30pm to 4.45pm).
