January 2019 Squad Program

Thank you for choosing to train with the City of Canning Squad programs.  It has been a very busy year for our squad swimmers with many children achieving their goals for the year.  Squads will conclude on Thursday 20 December at both Riverton Leisureplex and Cannington Leisureplex.  Squads at Riverton will resume on Wednesday 2 January 2019 and Monday 4 February 2019 at Cannington.  Squad swimmers are encouraged to train during the month of January to improve their stroke development and fitness in preparation of school carnivals and competitions which are held in the New Year.

Please remember, you need to enroll into squads prior to attending the sessions to be eligible to enter the pool.  No swimmers will be able to enter the pool without paying for their training sessions.  It is advisable to always book before the end of the month to avoid missing out on a squad session.
