Head Coach: Richard ‘D’ Davidson B.E.M FIOS (C)
This is the second squad within the junior group and is the start of the competitive swimming side of Northgate Swimming Club. This group will be of an age or ability to compete in open and league galas and will therefore be subjected to relevant training programmes to meet this aim. The emphasis now is on learning to race and there will be sessions designed to achieve the best outcome from all swimmers. Progress will be monitored using various test methods and adjustments to training programmes made to suit the rate of progression. The average age band will be 9 to 11 years but there will also be others older or even slightly younger than this (at our coaches discretion), where necessary, to meet the individual’s needs.
