State Squad swimmers are required to attend a minimum of five sessions per week and are offered three dryland sessions each week throughout the year. Swimmers are generally aged 12 years & older and are expected to attend training and competitions as agreed with the Head Coach. They will have a better understanding of force and how this applies to their movement in the water (decrease drag – increase propulsion – increase efficiency), thus propelling through the water at a greater speed.
State/National Squad swimmers are aiming to achieve multiple Victorian State Age/Open Championship times and are striving towards qualifying for Australian National Age/Open Championships.
As part of Doncaster Templestowe Swim Club all members of this squad are required to register as competitive members with DTSC and Swimming Victoria each year for competition purposes.
As part of this squad, swimmers are also offered 4x dryland sessions per week
