North Sydney Squads – Monte Sant Angleo Mercy College
The squads at Monte offer swimmers from Juniors to Elite level athletes to train in a private facility 25m pool.
All of our Junior squads at Big Blue focus on the long term technical, physiological, and psychological development of our swimmers. Whilst most sessions include small bouts of high intensity (anaerobic) swimming, the majority of training sets are of low to moderate intensity and designed to improve both the technique and aerobic capacity of our swimmers.
Senior Level Squads
Our Senior level squads at Big Blue focus on the goals of the swimmers that swim with us. These range from National level swimmers to Metropolitan qualifiers and school representatives. Training periodisation is meticulously planned by coaches Jon Bell and Pete Reiter, with a variety of training sets delivered depending on the goals of the individual swimmer.
The adult squads at Monte focus on different goals throughout the year. A big empahsis is put on open water events due to the number of swimmers interested in ocean swimming and triathlons. Due to the proximity of the pool to the North Sydney CBD, the adult squad is a favourite of those professionals who want to get some swimming in before heading home after a busy day.
