Junior Squad

Coach             –           Karen Cook

This is the start of training where children will learn the basics of becoming a competitive swimmer.  They will build upon the principals of advanced stroke technique taught in the pre-competition lessons, including racing starts, turns and finishes and also lane discipline.


  • Swimmers will normally be ages 6 to 12 years
  • Will commit to swim in ability galas, graded meets and junior league at the age of 8 for Billingham ASC.
  • Will not miss more than 3 sessions in a 3 month period
  • Will text coach at least 30 minutes before the start of a session if unable to attend

These are the maximum training times available to the squad and your progression to the full training programme will be by invitation of the Head Coach only.

Your present training times are highlighted below: –

Tuesday Billingham Forum 6.00 pm – 7.00 pm
Saturday Billingham Forum 8.00 am – 9.00 am

A review process to take place twice yearly.  All to take place with the coach, swimmer and parent/guardian.   Membership to this squad is dependent on compliance to the respective criteria sheets.  If the above is not adhered to, or it is deemed that the effort required is not evident and compliance throughout the review process is not evident then the swimmer will be asked to forfeit their place in the squad.
