Squads

FLC Squads

 

The aim of our squad program is for swimmers to develop fitness and competition skills and to learn new and advanced techniques to improve their own individual performance levels while working in a team environment.

Prior to entering squads, swimmers must have been assessed by squad or swim school staff.

When participating in squad programs, it is essential that swimmers and parents abide by squad rules.
