Seacliff Swim Squad
Seacliff SLSC would like to welcome you to our members only swim program. The club supports junior & senior swimmers through a professionally coached swim program, aiming to improve the fitness, swimming ability & competitive results of our members.
This squad is subsidised through sponsorship & the swim squad cannot continue without member support.
Joining the squad will ensure that all swimmers are challenged, fit, developing their swimming and preparing for surf lifesaving season whilst staying engaged with surf mate and meeting other the club members.
Swim fitness benefits greatly with surf swimming, board paddling & is a great way to enhance other training.
Our junior & senior groups are coached by Jack Thiele, Hayley Hosking & Bly Bayliss with occasional support from Angus Higgins. All the coaches are fully accredited.
Bly Bayliss coaches the morning session, he is a fully accredited swim coach & has many years of experience with surf lifesaving. Our coaches are all passionate about teaching our juniors & helping our senior group to achieve their fitness & competitive goals.
Standards for swimmers (these will be assessed by the coaches)
These are not ‘learn to swim’ sessions but rather squad training & each swimmer will be assessed (regularly) & allocated to a lane appropriate to their ability & that of the others who attend the session.
A beginner must be able to swim 50m freestyle (continuous with reasonable technique).
You are welcome to attend 2 free ‘Come & Try’ sessions where the coach will assess your ability in the pool.
We have a large group of adult (& some young adult) swimmers who want to maintain swimming fitness. We will continue to cater for this group in both evening & morning sessions. However, as a club our coaches will prioritise the development of the junior & competition group.
This means when there are a lot of juniors swimming, the coach will write a program up for you to follow but will spend more time focusing on the needs of the younger swimmers.
It is recommended that you join on a monthly plan to ensure you get the most from your training & the coaches have consistency as to who is attending for session planning.
All fees must be paid monthly in advance on 25th of the month (ie: payment must be made on 25th September to swim in October). This will assist the coaches to plan the programs & sessions, encourages you to commit to the sessions & ensure you achieve the most for your swimming with Seacliff SLSC.
We encourage you to join a monthly plan to ensure
- Swimmers develop to their full potential
- Coaches can provide the best program for swimmers
- We can continue to cover the lane hire & coaching costs
