The Head Coach, Mr Stephen Badger, has instituted a squad system at the Badger Swim School based upon his 8 years at an International Level and the experiences gained as an Assistant National Team Coach for Swimming Australia. This has produced National Champions and Australian Team members but just as importantly we still see the skills we taught 25 years ago being practiced in the public lanes by adults, swimming whilst their children have lessons with us. The aims of this program are:
Regardless of the swimmers level, it has to be fun
Swimming is a lifetime sport essential for a healthy lifestyle
Ultimately, it is the swimmer who will set their goals
All swimming needs to be based upon good technique.

Barracuda


As your child continues to improve the physical challenges need to increase to maintain their progress. The Barracudas provides another 15 minutes of instruction, making each session 1 hour long and introduces the 50m pool for training. Not all sessions are in the 50m pool (all sessions are indoors in Terms 2&3) but those that are provide an excellent aerobic fitness base necessary for a healthy lifestyle.
The program is still Medley based and more emphasis is placed upon speed with good technique “Relaxed Speed” so that not only do they swim well at the school carnival, they get results.
Some children at this level compete in inter-club meets, which we encourage on a limited basis (two or three meets a year is plenty). The local club, North Sydney Swimming Club, is one of the oldest in Sydney with a proud tradition of family based activities and has worked closely with the swim school for nearly 30 years

Compulsory equipment: Long Flippers. 
 

Piranha
Introduction of Bubbles
The first of the 1 ½ hour squads, the Piranhas, is the level that some specialization in the training sessions occurs. All four strokes are still done but a little more time is spent on the stroke/s that the child shows more promise in. Inter-club competition is again encouraged (perhaps three or four meets per year).
A greater variety of training sets are done in the Piranhas program to help prepare their pre-teen bodies for the physical changes they are about to experience. Times and technique are monitored by the coaching staff to gauge the level of adaptation, both physical and psychological, to the workloads being introduced.
Morning (mainly indoors) and afternoon (outdoors) sessions are available giving a good mix of short and long course training.

Compulsory equipment:Long Flippers; Snorkel.

Orca

This is the first level of squads where the program is based upon competition as training is specifically targeted to improve those areas needed to race. There are 6-8 targeted meets per year which the squad will prepare for, leading to State level competition. Squad members may opt not to compete but they will be expected to have the same level of commitment whilst training as those that do.
Progress is again monitored by the coaching staff, not just in terms of times and technique, but in the psychological tools necessary to compete successfully. Instruction is given in the strategies to be used in coping with an increased training load and the demands of high school.
There are two trips per year for members of the Orcas. A trip to a meet outside of Sydney (which requires membership in North Sydney) and a training camp in the September school holidays.

Compulsory equipment:Long Flippers; Snorkel.

Shark

The 2 hours per session program is completely focussed on competition. Sets are targeted to race performance and tailored to address individual requirements. One-on-one meetings with the coaching staff to discuss issues surrounding training, competition, study, nutrition and general health are conducted regularly. Strength training is part of the program with at least one gym session (more as required) and pre-session programs.
There are 6-8 targeted meets per year which includes at least one out-of-Sydney meet. There is a training camp in the September school holidays, usually out of state, and a mini-camp in January. Members of the Sharks are required to be members of North Sydney Swimming Club.

Compulsory equipment:Long Flippers; Short Flippers; Snorkel; Pull Buoy; Pull Band; Paddles.
