Swim coaching

Vision

To provide a long term sustainable competitive swimming development program that is athlete focussed, coach driven and administratively supported, with clear athlete development pathways from Junior to National level swimming, as well as providing programs for fitness and recreation. This will be achieved through a variety of programs focussed on education, participation and commitment with competent, caring and professional coaching staff dedicated to creating a team orientated environment.

  • To be a family oriented club with a friendly team environment where everyone supports each other's achievements.
  • To be successful in our metro area as well as at regional and state levels.
  • To have swimmers at a variety of levels all able to support and inspire each other.

Transition to Squad

Our unique Transition squad is designed to help children progress from our Learn to Swim program into our development stream. The program runs for 1 hour, once a week, and is helping children gain endurance whilst learning to "speak the language" of squads. This tailored program aims to help children wanting to be competitive swimmers to understand how to read the clock, read the swim boards, be introduced to racing and strengthen their competitive stroke techniques. Children joining this group must be able to swim Freestyle, Backstroke & Breaststroke with correct technique and timing.

Development Stream

The primary focus of the Advancement, Junior, Intermediate and Senior squads is technique and skill development. Each school term these squads train to compete in encouraged meet competitions, usually held towards the end of the term. This initiative has been set up to introduce swimming as a competitive sport in a friendly and encouraging environment. It will also provide members with an opportunity to establish individual goals and work towards achieving them.

The members of these squads (Advancement, Junior, Intermediate and Senior) are required to have an Associate Membership with DTASC. The cost of this membership is included in your monthly fees.

Competitive Stream

The Competitive stream has been designed to provide all year round training and to help all members in Development, State and National squads to achieve their competitive swimming goals.

It is a requirement for all members of the Development, State and National squads to have a full membership with DTASC as well as a competitive member with Swimming Victoria. This membership will allow swimmers to compete at all qualifying meets as well as at state and national level competitions.
