Squad List for Term Two 2021/22

As Bluefin continues to grow into the season, we are excited to announce squad moves for next term, starting Wednesday 5th January 2022.

Competitive swimming requires dedication, patience and lots of hard work. The frequency and duration of training is determined by the ability of the swimmer, which allows swimmers to develop at their own pace and amongst similarly skilled athletes.
