GLOSSARY:
SwimSquad: The FUN place to swim squad with a focus on fun, fitness, and recreational squad swimming in our 25 metre pool, with individualised training based on personal goals.
White Level:  An introductory rudimentary squad swim session for swimmers transitioning from Learn to Swim.  Because squad is FUN, in each session we utilise team based games, activities and drills for achievement of skills and stroke development.  White Level has a focus on squad etiquette to start as we mean to go on comfortably and confidently in this new environment.  45 mins per session.
Silver Level:  The squad swim session for the accomplished squad swimmer based on stroke development extension,  with focus on challenging your fitness in flexibility, strength & endurance and speed to achieve your personal goals.  And / or, fostering an interest in transitioning into competitive based training and team contribution.  1 hour per session.
Black Level:  Our top level squad swim session for the committed squad swimmer.  Stroke refinement is still the no.1 priority, alongside the continued development of your physical capabilities.  In Black Level, swimming may be your sport of choice, with personal goal setting based around competition results, or, you may be an experienced swimmer who is still in love with swimming.  Plus, a focus on harnessing your leadership qualities. 1.5 hour per session.
Adult LTS:  For adult non swimmers, or less confident swimmers or those wanting a few stroke focus sessions to improve technique.  Your Coach can be in the water to provide reassurance, assistance and in water support for the step by step progressions.  Focus on comfort, buoyancy, breath control, propulsion then stroke development.  30 mins per session.
Adult Squad:  Competent adult swimmers looking to improve their stroke and gain fitness, divided into 3 levels of competency.  You may be a parent of a swimmer and would love to swim with your child – check out our mornings on the timetable and swim together!  Also great for a competitive Masters swimmer, or any member of the community looking for a guided program.  1.5 hour per session.
Club Prep (Q2 & 3):  Exclusive to the Q2 & 3 cooler month’s timetable is your Club Prep session.  Start your next club season as strong as you finished the last one.  Our goal is to maintain your swim fitness and technique, with a focus on the race skills becoming second nature, enabling your focus on race strategies come Q4.  Bruce Lee once said “I don’t fear the man who’s done 10,000 fly kicks, I fear the man who’s done 1 perfect fly kick 10,000 times!”  Repetition is the key to learning, and Summer swimmers are made in Winter!
Race Prep (Q4 & 1):  It’s Club time!  On the Q4 & 1 timetable Spring into Summer and be meet ready for the Tuesday night Morningside Flyers Swim Club.  This weekly pre club session is exclusive to TEAM ACCELERATE members, and will encompass all levels.  Race Prep is a lighter session focused on race specific strategies to be prepared for the night ahead.  Remember, you earn your trophies at practice, and just pick them up at Competition.
Friday Funday:  Come along for this FUN “Fri-yay” session, where TEAM ACCELERATE swim purposefully as a Team with team based drills, sets, and challenges with rewards!  Just remember your new Coach Captain Josh is a Chipmunk so he’s a little bit nuts, who knows what might happen … come along and find out!
Saturday Sea & Sand:  A great start to the weekend with this light and flexible morning at swim training.  Following on from Friday Funday, Saturday is also all about the TEAM!  In 2 parts starting in the pool with a SwimSquad session for all levels from 600-730, tie together and practice your learning from the week.  Then, from 730-900 we go land based for fun and fitness with team activities, giving you opportunity to get together, socialise and build friendships with your team mates.  Parents are welcome to stay and actively participate, or drop and go!

All about your new Coach Captain Josh:
Jester Josh the Chipmunk joined Hampton Swim School as our TEAM ACCELERATE Squad Captain (Head Coach) in July 2017.  A happy, loving father of 3 children he has been swim coaching for over 10 years.  Josh has been working closely with Learning & Development Jen behind the scenes to create Hampton’s brand new exciting program for squad swimmers – TEAM ACCELERATE!  Josh believes happy confident swimmers make fast swimmers and this has been demonstrated throughout his career by consistently placing swimmers on national teams since 2012.  Josh was honoured to be selected to coach the Brisbane Patrons Shield Team in 2015, and was awarded QLD JX Coach of the Year (ages 9-12) by Swimming Qld in 2015/2016 season.  As a specialist in the Hampton age groups we are excited to have Josh on board.  Josh’s work philosophy is that “Children, adults and athletes alike come and swim for fun not fear and race for progress not places”.  If Josh was an animal he would be a Chipmunk because he has endless amounts of energy, never sits still, and is just a little bit nuts!

What to expect when beginning TEAM ACCELERATE:
During the first 2 weeks of squad swimming in TEAM ACCELERATE meet Coach Josh and show him your swimming!  He will provide a new and FUN set of activities and drills designed to gauge your starting level in TEAM ACCELERATE.  Once you have been branded, you’ll receive your first TEAM ACCELERATE colour coded cap to wear to squad for free!  Over the coming weeks Coach Josh will work with each individual child to establish your swim goals, and will provide you your individual swim portfolio for tracking progress.
