Hornsby Squads

Squad Pathway

The sport of swimming offers many benefits, both in competitive and recreational environments.  Swimmers develop self-discipline, the ability to accept and apply feedback, good sportsmanship, and time management skills.  Extending to competitive swimming allows the swimmer to experience success and to learn how to deal with defeat; to plan and work towards set objectives while becoming healthy and physically fit.

At Swim@Barker we not only develop swimmers but also confident, healthy, and independent individuals who can build on a strong foundation to reach their full potential both in and out of the pool.

At Swim@Barker we believe that swimming is a skill for life.

The Swim@Barker recreational swim program is tailored to suit a wide range of abilities and fitness levels.  Whether you are keen to maintain a healthy active lifestyle, maintain fitness in off-season, are using the pool for rehabilitation and recovery, or are working your way back to competitive swimming, we have a squad program to suit your needs.
