Juniors: is for swimmers who can do all 4 strokes and are working on continuing to develop their turns, dives and strokes. They train more than the development group and have a focus on competing. A junior needs to be able to swim a minimum of 50m continuously at the beginning of the season.

They are begin work diving off the blocks and start working on turns including flip turns. They should be able to swim 25m or almost 25m on their front and/or back.
