Advancement Squad

2 girls lap swimming

Northcote Aquatic & Recreation Centre's Advancement Squad is an introduction to squad-style swimming without the competitive atmosphere. The sessions are designed to provide an alternative challenge for participants to introduce stroke refinement, increase understanding of how and why we swim along with developing skills, strength and endurance and fitness concepts.

Sessions are held weekly for one hour and offer unlimited recreational access to the pool, similar to our regular Swimming Lessons program membership. No minimum age is required but students will need to have a minimum standard of swimming ability. As a guide, students should have completed Shark level in a YMCA Swimming Lessons program or equivalent. Please contact us to register your interest in the development squad

Please note that Advancement Squad is held in the 50m outdoor pool which is heated year-round.
