Performance Gold is the top group of the elite performance pathway. Swimmers will compete on a National level up to International level.


Entry Criteria

  • Female 13+ and Male 14+  
  • Qualify for Nationals via British Championships (April) or British / English Summer Championships (July/August)
  • Compulsory attendance for National qualifiers to British Championships (April) and British / English Summer Championships (July/August)
  • Aiming for National success / International qualification
  • 100% commitment to team events (National Arena Swimming League and team relays)

National qualifiers will receive automatic invitations to train with the squad. If training slots still exist within the squad prior to each season, other invitations may be presented to non-National swimmers purely at the discretion of the head coach. Non-National swimmer slots will be evaluated yearly after Regionals (April/May) and may be rescinded to make room for additional National qualifiers or to focus on training for those attending Nationals.

A place within this squad is under constant review, based on attendance, attitude, performance in training and in competition.

Session Attendance (95%+)

  • 13 years age as of 31st December - 6 sessions per week / 2 land sessions
  • 14/15 years age as of 31st December - 7 sessions per week / 3 land sessions
  • 16 years age as of 31st December - 8 sessions per week / 3 land sessions
  • 17+ years age as of 31st December - 9 sessions per week / Individual S & C programme

Swimmers will receive an individual training schedule when joining the squad which will outline the session requirement – swimmers may be asked to do more or less based on their physiological development and main events. This will be done at the discretion of the Head Coach.
