Masters Squad

For those swimmers of a certain age who no longer meet the requirements of Phase 5 but who still want to train more than their home club can offer. Or those whose competitive urges still demand adequate training for top class competition or regular early morning workouts to shake themselves awake.

Masters Squad

What's on Offer?

Four early morning training sessions for the dedicated Masters swimmer. Each session is 2 hours in duration and should fit nicely before most Masters swimmers head off for work. You'll be training alongside the best Age-Group/Senior swimmers in Doncaster (so will be challenged daily) with Dartes Head Coach Andrew Wallace providing the tips.

If demand is strong enough, further water time may be made available in the future. However, the early morning nature of these sessions should double up nicely with existing evening masters sessions at the clubs. Even the most dedicated masters swimmer should now have access to ample training time.


There are a few minimum requirements, but we've tried to keep this as accessible as possible. We do however, expect squad members to be regularly competing athletes (not just fitness swimmers). You will be expected to work to the set programme with the rest of the squad, this is not DIY lane swimming.

We would also appreciate all squad members representing a unified Doncaster Dartes Masters Squad in competition (especially Yorkshire, NER, and National Masters Championships); or for younger participants, you would still be expected to compete at Senior Yorkshires, NERs, and Nationals where applicable.

Minimum Age: 16 (to accomodate those with too much school work to handle Phase 5)
Maximum Age: N/A
Monthly Fees:
- £25 (under 80p/hour) for all 4 mornings
- £15 for any 2 mornings

Because of the nature of Dartes, squad members must also be registered with one of our feeder clubs and registered with the ASA via that club.

For more details please contact Coach Wallace.
