Squad lists and the training timetables are reviewed on a term by term basis. It is important that you only attend the sessions which you have been allocated to. West Coast Swimming Club offers differentiated programs across three squad levels; State Age / Open, Development and Junior. Swimmers transitioning between squads are also catered for during this stage in their development.

Where We Train
The West Coast Swimming Club train at the Port Lincoln Leisure Centre in Port Lincoln and at other regional pools such as Cummins. Membership to the club is open to swimmers from across the Eyre Peninsula and training opportunities are dependent on the availability of coaches and facilities in each regional location. Throughout the year swimmers are also given the opportunity to be involved in coaching clinics and training programs outside of club activities.
