Description

At the pinnacle of our squad system is our Training Performance Squad. Athletes in this squad are some of the most dedicated and determined people in the region. In a county with such a strong reputation in sport, Leicester City FC and Leicester Tigers RFC leading the charge on a national and global level, our Training Performance Programme is determined to carry this success into swimming. 

Our Training Performance squad have access to 9 sessions (17 hours) of training per week, including 3 hours of land based training, as well as a planned Training Camp during the season to unite them as a team and challenge them as individuals. They are the core of our successful National Arena League team, and compete regularly as individuals to challenge their competitors to keep pace with them. 

Under the coaching of Mark McKenna, our athletes are educated in advanced skills and stroke techniques, as well as land based training, race tactics and post race analysis. They are heavily involved in their season planning, with the team working hard to improve as a group and develop into an elite squad of swimmers.
