Squads

At ELSC we deliver two levels of non-competitive squad training for our junior athletes. Both squads are programmed to meet the needs of young athletes where the main focus is on reinforcement of correct swimming biomechanics, enforcement of good squad etiquette, increased fitness and endurance and providing athletes with the necessary skills and tools to further their aquatic sport pursuit. Whether an athlete is swimming for recreational fitness or has aspirations of representative honors, at ELSC our philosophy remains the same; keep it simple, do it right and have fun!
