Swim and Survival Academy

news genericDuring Term 2 the Squad program focuses on Distance swimming. Throughout the term, all swimmers will attempt a 1km distance swim during their regular squad sessions. Distance swims are designed to develop strong aerobic skills within our swimmers. Distance swims form an important part of our certificate system. To qualify for the Middle Squad certificate swimmers need to complete a 1km swim.

To qualify for Senior Squad, swimmers need to complete a 3km swim, and for the Bronze Medallion swimmers need to complete a 7km or larger swim. All participants in distance swims receive a trophy, a certificate and a place on our wall of fame. Swimmers receive their medals at our annual Presentation (after the Top Gun swims on Saturday, July 1st ).

All swimmers who complete a 1km swim, will have the chance to make it onto our 1km leader boards. The fastest 10 times across each level will make it onto the boards. The fastest six of each level will be invited to swim in the Top Gun Swim off (see information below), which is a race over 1km.
