Oakland’s Aquatics Club

Our Aquatics Club follows Swim England’s Aquatic Skills Framework, which aims to build sports specific skills that focuses on the Aquatic Sports.

There are three Stages (Stages 8, 9 and 10) to the framework covering four Aquatic Sports; Swimming, Diving, Synchronised swimming and Water polo. Each Stage has specific outcomes for the swimmer to meet as they progress through the Club, working on all four Aquatic disciplines.
Swimmers can join the Aquatics Club once they have completed Stage 7 of the Learn to Swim Stages, sessions take place once and week and are an hour long.
As well as working through the Swim England Stages, swimmers will also complete supplementary badges, such as the Rainbow Distance Awards.
A typical Aquatics Club session will start with a warm-up of swimming, using the pace clock and tumble turns where appropriate. The session could either then be based on developing swimmers stroke technique or working on specific skills relating to Diving, Synchronised swimming and Water polo.
The Aquatics Club aims to provide a pathway for swimmers to enter other clubs and develop a lifelong love for their sport, whether it be joining a Swimming, Diving, Synchronised swimming or Water polo club.
