Lane and Squad Swimming
Lane and Squad swimming is for swimmers of Stage 5 and above in the Swim England Pathway. It is an exciting place for young swimmers to continue their swimming. Our squad structure starts with Puffins / Stage 5 which are our earliest length classes with swimmers being able to swim 25-50m of three strokes, progressing to Penguins / Stage 6 swimming 50m to 100m of all four strokes, then to Pelicans / Stage 7 swimming 100m up to 400m and onto Seals / Stage 7 with swimmers able to swim 400m plus and be able to swim 100m of each stroke.
Progressing on from these classes is Squad which offers an hour session with Swim England Level 2 Coaches. Swimmers should be at Stage 8 of the Swim England pathway and be able to swim all four strokes 100m plus, dive, and understand all correct turns. This group is the beginning of training for competitive swimming and fitness training.
Next stop after Squad will be a recommendation to Eastbourne Swimming Club for competitive training.
Our aim is to deliver a rounded swimmer, who can then make a their own decision whether to swim for fun, fitness, competition or move into a more specific water based activity.
Entry to Squad swimming is subject to a swim test
