Squads

Bluefins squads are organised by ability levels. Information on each squad can be found below:


The Pups squad is the club's junior squad. The swimmers in this squad will normally join the club once they finish swimming lessons.

The aim of the squad is to introduce swimmers to the techniques and disciplines of competitive swimming. They will also be introduced to racing starts and turns.

Once they are ready, they will be encouraged to compete in local competitions in order to build their confidence in racing.

As a member of the Seals squad you will be eligible to attend all three of the sessions. Please try and attend all sessions if you are able to.

In the Seals squad you will work harder than in the Pups, swimming longer distances with short rest periods between 'sets'. The aim is to eventually move you into the Sharks squad.

Please arrive about ten minutes before the training session and once changed, wait quietly on the poolside. There may be lessons taking place and it is courteous to be quiet for younger swimmers.

As you progress in the Seals and prior to joining the Sharks squad, you will be moved into the "Seals Transition Group" and invited to swim in some additional sessions.

The Sharks squad is the senior squad in the club, where swimmers are trained to their full potential.

The swimmers in this group regularly compete at District and National events, achieving final positions and medals. (The Club has had two Scottish Champions from this squad.)

The emphasis is on developing the swimmers to achieve these aims through challenging sessions, while continuing to perfect techniques learned in earlier groups.

Forres Bluefins have a thriving and successful Masters squad who compete at local and National competitions, with many members also participating in open water swimming.
