Adult Swim Squads

Develop your skills, technique and endurance in the water with The NAC water programs. Work with a group under the watchful eye of an NAC coach, and benefit from their wealth of knowledge in swim, surf and triathlon.

This is open to all levels and ages, with a focus on triathletes, seniors and masters looking to tweak and improve their technique.

Junior Swim Squads

This program provides flexibility and ideal for budding athletes allowing them to swim in competitive environments locally and nationally. The program is also beneficial for those looking to improve their general fitness, or as a complementary training for other sporting activities.

JUNIOR SQUAD PROGRAM

It’s fantastic to welcome you all back. Things are slowly returning to what we would call normal with familiar faces coming through the doors again.

For those who are unaware Graeme Brewer from Noosa Swim Squads has finished his contract with the NAC and we are proud of his achievements over the last 7 years. We thank him for his efforts and wish him well for the future.

Josh Minogue

I am currently the head coach at Sunshine Beach SLSC and have been involved in Swimming and Surf Sports my entire life. I have been part of Australian national level teams and competed internationally in swimming and surf sports since the age of 13.
Once I switched to surf sports in the 6 years before retiring I spent 6 seasons in the Kelloggs Nutri-Grain Ironman Series; had one win and 3 podium finishes in the Coolangatta Gold and won 30 open medals at the Australian Championships.  My goal in coaching is to make a difference to these young people’s lives both in and out of the water, by helping them take ownership of their training. I am about hard work and having integrity in what you do; and hopefully have a lot of fun along the way.

Belinda Granger

I have a Bachelor of Human Movement (Sydney University), have been a Physical Education teacher for 12 years and former professional Triathlete for 18 years with 15 Ironman Distance titles. I a member of the Australian Ironman Hall of Fame and I’ve been living in Noosa now for 18 years so it feels really great to be able to give back to a community that has given me so much throughout my triathlon career. Being a teacher at heart, I am really looking forward to coaching this squad of amazing teenagers and not only installing many of the values I have been taught over the years but also emphasising fun and fitness as a way of life, especially here on the Sunny Coast.

Tim Mandeville

I have 25 years coaching experience including the Noosa Aquatic Centre Junior Learn to Swim Program for 3 years. Currently I am coaching at Noosa Heads Surf Life Saving Club for ocean swimmers including masters. I love giving kids the confidence to get excited about their water sports!

Sally Evens

I have been a swim coach for 25 years and the last 19 working at NAC. I have coached children from seven years through to adults, incorporating all levels of abilities including learn to swim, pool competition, surf and triathlon. I really enjoy teaching people that swimming can be broken down into working on different skills utilising specific drills. Then bring it all together to make their swimming enjoyable, easier and more efficient. Whether you are learning to swim or for general fitness or to refine your stroke I can help you.

Catherine White

I have coached at the NAC for the past ten years, with previous experience at other aquatic facilities. Through my qualifications and experience, I am qualified to coach a range of abilities from fundamental squad skills to advanced stroke correction. My partner and I are 30 year locals and our three children have been involved in the local surf lifesaving clubs and swim clubs for many years. They started as nippers and now compete in elite competitions, such as the Nutrigrain Iron Series and have represented Australia. It all started with swimming lessons at the NAC! My passion is to provide an enjoyable and rewarding environment, so each child’s needs are met to reach their swimming goals.
