Pikopiko Squad

The Pikopiko Development Squad focuses on giving  young athletes the opportunity to improve their skills and experience the high performance environment in a supported way. Coaches focus on outcomes that support the development of the athletes’ skills in all areas – figures, routine skills, land drilling, and fundamental synchro skills.  The athletes learn to work with others of similar abilities and from different clubs – one of the highlights for athletes is getting to know swimmers and coaches from other clubs. 

For 2021, we have 15 athletes in the Pikopiko Squad. A travelling team will be selected from this squad after a series of Training Camps to target an international competition in 2021 (dates and venue are still to be confirmed. Currently due to covid-19 we are awaiting FINA confirmation of 2021 International events).  Squad members who are not selected to travel this year will have the opportunity to attend a Skills Development camp later in 2021. Athletes selected for the 2021 Pikopiko Squad are
