Competitive

After assessment by our coaching team, promising athletes may be invited to join one of our competitive squads. These squads are the next step up and are designed for swimmers wanting to finesse their artistic swimming techniques, continue developing their teamwork skills learning routines and compete in two New Zealand competitions – the South Island Regionals and the NZ Nationals.

Athletes will participate in teams, duets, solos or a combination of these at the Head Coach’s discretion. Training hours depend on the competitive squad, with two training sessions per week as a minimum, and high level competitors are encouraged to participate in additional fitness and strength training outside of normal ASASC training sessions. 

All competitive athletes should spend a minimum of 30 minutes daily on stretching and practising land drills for routines. Additional training sessions may be scheduled closer to competition dates.
