Rackley Kawana Squad Programs caters for all abilities and the focus is on developing each swimmer to reach their potential and love of the sport. Training sessions will provide swimmers the skills and stamina needed to set their sights on competing at their chosen level be it Local, School, Masters or National level. Kawana Waters Swim Club and its coaching staff are supporters of Swimming QLD's Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model the aim of the training model is to ensure that young athletes are introduced to certain types of training at the appropriate time. This is referred to as "critical periods of train-ability" and requires careful consideration and planning by our coaches.
