Pro Squad

Lead Coach: Mark Rose and Lewis Fox

Our Pro Squad mission is to be the best we can be and be all into our self-improvement. We will reduce all
negative performance influences and do all we can to be the best version of ourselves. We make
no apologies for being obsessive and relish this journey.

As part of this group, you will have access to 9 pool sessions a week at the world famous Manchester Aquatics Centre and access to supportive land work.

The Squad works with a variety of staff to support including;
Performance Analysis, Strength and Conditioning, Physiology, Physiotherapy and Yoga and Sport Psychology.

We partner with the university teams throughout the City of Manchester Swim Team and the PRO

World University Games and work to support this.

provide appropriate racing that develops you around this.
