With this new and improved squad structure the coaching team have assigned swimmers into the appropriate squads.

A number of factors have been taken into account. These include Gala performance, training performance, swimmers age (end of year), Attendance, and long term potential of the swimmer.

Parents / swimmers will receive an email communication confirming the squad they have been assigned to.

Monitoring of swimmer development and movement within the squad structure will take place three times a year – September, January and April.

In entering any of the Squads the swimmer will generally serve a minimum three months probationary period during which time they will be carefully monitored to ensure they are coping with the relevant squad’s training and competition culture.

The Head Coach will ultimately have the final decision on all squad movements, placements, and progressions.

To ensure all swimmers get the most out of their training, it is essential that everyone adheres to the club’s Code of Conduct at all times.
