Joining a squad


The City of Sydney Aquatic Club is a very inclusive club. We are confident that we can find a place for all enthusiastic swimmers who have developed the core techniques of the four strokes of swimming. We run a number of different squads, details of which can be found on our Squad levels page.

To join a squad you will normally need to meet with the coach of the pool you want to swim and the swimmer will need to be assessed. Following the assessment, the coach will advise you which squad the swimmer should join, the expectations for that level and the schedule. For most squads it is expected that you join the Club though we do not enforce this for SwimFit and Junior Dolphin members.

A swimmers inclusion in any squad is entirely at the discretion of the coach of that pool.
