The STARplex Squad Program offers two pathways for swimmers who have completed our Swim School top level (Turtles) and wish to continue.

STARplex Mini Squad and Rising Stars

After passing Turtles, swimmers are invited to join a recreational stream which is made up of Mini Squad and Rising Stars. It is here that swimmers can further develop their techniques. After completing the requirements in these levels, swimmers can continue to the Fitness Squads or the competition stream.

STARplex Swim Club (competitive)

Includes four levels which all have structured entry and participation requirements. The program enables swimmers to compete at all sanctioned Swimming SA events and meets including state and national championships as a member of the STARplex Swim Club. The STARplex Swim Club Programs are affiliated with the STARplex Swim Club and therefore it is compulsory for all swimmers of this stream (State Development Squad and above) to be members of the STARplex Swim Club.
