  • Each Squad has a level of competency for swimmers to achieve while in that squad. This includes consistent technique, ability to complete swim drills and distance for the squad as well as confidence in the water.
  • Progression throughs squads is determined by BSC Coaches based on the swimmer's ability to demonstrate competency in key skills set for each squad. This ensures all swimmers in each squad are swimming and progressing at a similar level and are confident in that squad.
  • Progression through squads is not age based but determined by demonstrated swim skills.
  • Your child's best chance to rapidly progress is by consistently attending 2x a week for maximum benefit and skill acquisition.
