Please click on each squad page to find out more details about the criteria for each squad
Our standard squad progression programme is as follows:

  • Academy
  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Olympic
  • Aqua and Aqua Junior (For swimmers that want to purely train or only compete occasionally.)

NOTE: This is a standard progression for swimmers that enter through the Academy.

The criteria is a guide and ultimately the decision on all transitions is at the discretion of the Squad Coach and Head Coach.

Please contact the club to discuss your child's swimming experience/lesson stage achieved because we run regular trials where we can assess your child's suitability to any of our squads.

Please email Rose Boyd-Coates at: ddscteammanager@gmail.com and she will be happy to discuss our club with you.

Also see How to become a Member page for more information on joining criteria.

NOTE: These squads are subject to change and you will be notified of any changes to squad names, session times and any effect on monthly squad fees

We also have some more details on our Club Night Operating Procedures page.
