Junior Competition 

Age: 11-14

Description:

Junior Competition is a squad aimed at Age Group swimmers who want to continue to train and compete, but who for any reason cannot commit to the squad criteria for the Performance Pathway.

Our Competition squads are very much integrated with the Performance squads and, where appropriate, swimmers may transfer from the Competitive Pathway to Performance Pathway and vice versa.

There is no minimum attendance required, but swimmers are encouraged to take advantage of as many sessions as they can. Competing is not a requirement in Senior Competition, however swimmers in the group still have their competitive ASA memberships so are entitled and encouraged to enter competitions throughout the year.

Criteria:

  • Regular attendance expected, no minimum weekly requirement
  • 3 out of 4 strokes legal in 100m events
  • Understanding of a pace clock
  • Understanding and acceptance of lane etiquette/discipline
  • Participation in Club Championships encouraged
  • Open meets should be entered on the coach’s recommendation only - swimmers are actively encouraged to attend open meets appropriate for their age and development level
