If you do have any querielease ask your squad Coach.

Potential Squad is the next level that Development swimmers should be aspiring to. The step up in training time and expectations is quite steep and we would like to bridge that gap. One of the major additions in the Potential squad is the addition of morning training. We have incorporated one morning a week at a very reasonable time to ease Development into the introductions to mornings. 
 
Please also note that this session will also be used as a link session for Junior Development swimmers and the Head Coach will drop in from time to time.
