SQUAD Swimming at The Glennie Aquatic Centre

Squads are open to Glennie girls and the wider community. Our coaches are all accredited with Ascta (Australian Swimmers, Coaches & Teachers Association). Their aim is to encourage swimmers to achieve their potential, enjoy their sport and retain it as a life skill. Whether it is swimming competitively or for fitness we have a squad that will suit.
