Development Squad

These squads are there to move the swimmers through Levels 8-10 of the ASA’s National Plan for the Teaching of Swimming (NPTS).

These levels are designed to begin teaching swimmers many of the key skills that move them from being an able swimmer towards being a competitive swimmer and building their endurance.

Development Squad Trials

Development trials take place on the last Thursday of every month at Tottenham Green Pools and last Friday of every month at Park Road Pools, but please check dates. 

Trialists should be on poolside ready to get in the water at 6pm. Swimmers must wear a swimming costume and hat, goggles may be worn.
They will need to show that they are able to perform all 4 strokes competently.

For information about to what expect at a trial click here Pre-requirements criteria for Development Squad Trials 2019.
Trialists will be required to swim for an hour and our Coach will determine whether they are ready for our sessions.

If your child has passed Stage 7 and have been advised that they are ready to move on, book them onto one of our trials by contacting either Sharon or Marianna at [email protected]
