 Club training

New swimmers are admitted to CQ Aquajets Swim Club any time during the year.  New swimmers to the program are invited to come to the North Side pool (330-360 Berserker St.) for a swim evaluation. Upon completion of the evaluation you will be assigned a swim group.  Registration can begin at that time.  For more information regarding assessment test for the club please call coach Val on 0468896156

Assessment:  Your child will be asked to demonstrate all the strokes he/she knows.  As this is an assessment test he/she can’t fail.  After the evaluation, your child will be assigned a swim squad. If he/she does not meet the minimal expectations of our Bronze Squad, you will be offered entry into our swim school.

Whatever squad your child is assigned, please note they will continue to be assessed by our coach.  Swimmers who may have under performed at their initial assessment test may be promoted or swimmers who struggled with the group requirements, may be reassigned to an easier squad or swim school.

 

EQUIPMENT

All swimmers require a water bottle.

Swimmers doing any dry land training will be required to wear suitable clothing for participating in training in the gym. Such as clothing that allows free movement comfortably. All children must also wear suitable joggers and socks into the gym.

Please approach the coach regarding any equipment your child may require. Generally all swimmers require a pair of swimmers, a pair of goggles, a set of fins, a kickboard and pull buoy. The gold squads may also require finger paddles and snorkel.

Swim carnivals attendance is encouraged and all swimmers in this group are enrolled in our coordinated meet entry system.
