Kells SC currently consists of 4 squads. When your swimmer is assessed for entry to the club the coach who assesses your swimmer will decide which squad is the best squad to suit your child’s level of swimming ability and age profile.
As swimmers learn new skills they progress from one squad to another. Movement from lane to lane and from Squad to Squad is determined by the current set of guidelines designed to prepare swimmers for competitive swimming. (These may differ from other teaching classes that the children may attend or know of).
Movement between squads will also depend on situations that exist at the time i.e. age of swimmer, numbers in the lanes, specific abilities of swimmer etc. The guidelines are subject to change. See Progression Pathway for criteria for movement.
