Squad Level Overview 2019

As our valued customer, Bribie Island Aquatic Leisure centre is excited to announce a new opportunity through our partnership with Steve Fern Swimming & Swimming Australia.

Upon reviewing the current aquatic program framework operating at Belgravia Leisure managed venues, we have established a clear and significant need for a modernised framework that improves education quality and the pathway into competitive swimming.

One of the outcomes of this partnership with Swimming Australia is to create lifelong swimmers.
The new squad program is a Swimming QLD initiative and the aim of the model is to ensure that children are introduced to certain types of training at the appropriate time.
Previously you would have needed to book into specific days.

The new program allows for flexibility where each family pay a specific amount depending on the level and this allows for the swimmer to attend which ever sessions suitable to their personal availability.

**All weekly prices includes unlimited sessions plus free entry outside squad for the enrolled swimmer + 1 adult!

We will have 2 payments options; a 3 month upfront option or a weekly direct debit.

Please contact the centre for specific details.

Coach - Steven Fern

Steve has had extensive coaching experience both here and overseas, with time spent at the University of Alabama in the United States and spending over three years in Singapore.

One of his many career highlights has been his selection to the coaching staff of several Singapore teams at international level in both Age Group and Open Competition. Back home, Steve has had representatives at both state and national level in the pool, surf and triathlon.

Steve holds a Silver level and Open Water coaching licence (Swimming) and a Development Coach licence (Triathlon) and have a Level 1 ASCA Strength and Conditioning Coach qualification.

Steve’s philosophy is one of allowing everyone to find their love of swimming (whether it is in the Pool, Surf, Open Water or Triathlon) and to pursue their goals.

**Steve will be joining the Belgravia Leisure Team at Bribie Island after his long-earned winter break (Term 2 & 3). In Steve’s absence, Jacob Curtin will be taking the squads.
