Marlins Masters Squad

Masters Swimming comes to Monbulk

The Marlins are now offering an adult/masters squad for anyone 18+ starting in February. No need to be a superstar in the water, just an interest in swimming more, improving fitness, and maybe even competing. Any parents/grandparents/older siblings of existing Marlins will have their joining fee waived if a family member is a member already.

The Monbulk Marlins Coaching Philosophy

As a coach I aim to encompass a holistic approach to coaching. There are a variety of elements that are important for coaching, from long term technique and stroke development, to individualised emotional growth. At the Marlins, the coaching team and I follow season plans that not only cater for the whole squad, but also cater for each swimmer at an individual level. Through this, the swimmers are provided with the opportunity to gain support from their coaches and have the chance to improve.

The coaching team works as one, utilising our individualised strengths to assist the swimmers to the best of our abilities. Communication between each other and self-reflection is vital to ensure all Marlins’ swimmers are provided with the best level of coaching that we can provide.

Every swimmer and every coach at the Marlins have a role and an individualised pathway for their own goals and journey. Not one swimmer’s journey compared to another is less important, so that is why at the Marlins, as a coach I aim to encompass a well-rounded environment for all, for everyone to achieve their goals and follow the pathway they desire.

Ringwood Encouragement Meet

Coach Eboni says this is an excellent meet for Marlins new and old. Encouragement meets are not classed as official meets but get swimmers used to competition swimming.
