Advanced Level "Squads"
Main Outcome - Strengthen distance, stamina, rhythm and timing in all 4 strokes, competitive swimming, medleys (combining all 4 strokes), competitive tumble turns
In the Squad level, your child will learn how to work out turn-around times using the pace clock and lane etiquette, together with all the different turns, including Individual Medley. Stroke technique will be further emphasised and drills will be introduced and advanced with increasing distances, along with further progressions aiding a better understanding of technique.

It is very common for children taking ISA lessons to be in the top swimming group at school.
How long it will take for my child to learn?
Children who started our beginner level with us as babies will likely be at the Squads level by the time they are around 5 – 6 years old, although they may be older when they reach this stage due to differences in developmental speeds. Swimmers at the Squad level are given the opportunity to attend our Friendly Swimming Gala, participating in the 25 metres exercise in all the 4 traditional swimming strokes.
