The aim of the Riverside Development Squad section is to increase stamina, and improve stroke technique. Swimmers have the opportunity to swim lengths, using both the main pool and learner pool on a rota basis with the possibility of selection to move up to one of the competitive squads. Children over 12 years of age are encouraged to move on from the Development Squad to the club's SwimFit Section.
The squad trains every Tuesday evening between 7.15pm and 8.00pm, at Chelmsford Riverside Pool.
To join children must be able to swim at least 250 metres and be at least 7 years old.
The first two sessions are free, and swimmers are regularly assessed for a trial session with the Intro/Junior squad at New Hall School Pool.
PLEASE NOTE: There is currently a short waiting list for places in the Riverside Development Squad. If you wish to add your name to the list, please download the membership forms, complete and return to us and we'll get in touch as soon as a place becomes available.
