At AISB we have Swimming Squads for the students who want to extend their swimming skills and also wish to represent the school in swimming competitions.
There are three squads, an Advanced, Intermediate and Development Squads.
Training sessions are held from 15:00 to 16.00, members of the Advanced Squads may choose 06.15 to 07.15, in 10-week blocks. T
In each session, training sets focus on a particular stroke each week.
An additional session called “Club Races” is run on Fridays 15:00 – 16:30, where students will get an opportunity to race other students within the squad. These races provide a chance for the students to practice their 25 and 50m swims with recorded times each week, so they can work on achieving their Personal Best times.
