Training Squads

Alliance Swimming Club training is organised into a series of progressive training squads.


The Junior Training Squad caters for swimmers from ages 7 - 13, and the emphasis is very strongly upon enjoyment and participation, technique across the four main strokes and aquatic skills development.

The Development Squad comprises competitive swimmers at age 11+ who have met training and performance requirements. Each swimmer works to a training regime specific to an agreed development programme. Swimmers in this squad also take some sessions with Templemore ASC under a co-operation agreement that offers swimmers a pathway into top-level competitive swimming.

The Senior Fitness Squad caters for swimmers at 13+ whose primary interest is swimming for fitness whether this is in support of other sports or more generally.

The training regime for all squads is overseen by Head Coach, Robbie Dougan.
