Squads and Insurance

A Squad
Are the more experienced swimmers and train eight to eleven hours every week. To be a member of A squad the swimmer needs to be very dedicated to swimming and have a lot of commitment. They build up speed and stamina and compete against other swimmers at district, county and national level.

B Squad
Swim for five hours every week. They focus on building up stamina and improving technique. They enter local galas and leagues and can sometimes achieve district and county times.

C Squad
Have approximately 12 members and swim for two hours every week. They often enter junior league competitions and spend a lot of time perfecting the four main strokes in swimming.

We have two shrimp classes and they swim for thirty minutes every week. They mainly continue to improve technique and practise diving.

Are our younger swimmers in the big pool. There are three tadpole classes and the children progress through the classes as their swimming improves.

Small Pool
This is our beginner class, where children get their first taste of swimming. There are three classes and the children swim for thirty minutes a week. When they are safe and confident swimming in deeper water they move to Tadpoles.

Land Training
A, B and C squad members are encouraged to attend a land training session for an hour every week. This is run by a qualified fitness instructor and aims to build up the swimmers strength. Not only is it fun but it encourages team work among the swimmers.
For insurance purposes you are required to take out an Amateur Swimming Association Annual Registration before you can swim at Peterlee Swimming Club. The clubs insurance certificates are displayed on the committee notice board in the clubroom.

This is split into 2 levels for swimmers :-

Category 1 is for non-competitive cover and is required by members of the club who are not involved in competitive swimming.

Category 2 is required by all members of A, B and C squads who take part in competitions.

The registration committee members will arrange this for you upon joining the club or at the annual renewal of this in February.

The cost for this varies according to which level of cover you require, and you will be notified of this when the prices for the forthcoming season have been published by the ASA.
