ASC Squads

Updated June 2022

New swimmers will be assessed as to their current swimming capabilities and put into training squads that suit those capabilities. An outline of the available squads is below. Training is provided by qualified licensed coaches through Swimming WA and who are also registered with ASCTA (Australian Swimming Coaches & Teachers Association). All pool sessions are at the Leschenault Leisure Centre unless specified otherwise.

As we are a competitive swimming club, all new members must have a desire to compete and represent our club.  The expectation is that all swimmers will attend time trials at least twice a month with the aim of progressing to local competitions as soon as they are ready.
