There is a wide range of ability in the squad, and the intensity of training is set differently for the different lanes, so that everyone gets the most out of it.
There is no obligation to turn up to all the sessions, but the more you swim, the better you get!
There is also no obligation to compete, although a majority of the squad do swim at least some competitions. Some swimmers just come for fitness, others compete at National, European and World level. Swimmers can enter competitions as they like, subject to entry times, and the club enters relay teams to selected meets.
We also have some competitive triathletes, and the odd water polo player, too.
You need to be 18 years or older to join (the club has lots of other squads for younger swimmers.)
