Squads (To Be Updated)

Brompton Swimming Club is comprised of 7 core swimming squads.

1. National Development Squad (NDS)

At the heart of the club are the age group and youth sections, headed up by the National or Senior squad. Every swimmer in this squad will aim to compete at a National and Regional level.

2. Regional Development Squad (RDS)

3. Junior Development Squad (JDS)

Developing technique, strength, stamina and speed are the swimmers in the Regional and Junior squads. Every swimmer in these squads is expected to compete at a County level and target Regional qualification.

4. County Development Squad (CDS)

Swimmers at County level are aiming specifically at the County championships, but, more importantly, should be learning the fundamentals of competitive swimming and be dedicated to their training.

5. Academy 3 (AS3)

6. Academy 2 (AS2)

7. Academy 1 (AS1)

The Academy squad is our entry level, split across Academy 1 (AS1), Academy 2 (AS2), and Academy 3 (AS3), where swimmers develop their technical skills to prepare them for competition. Swimmers in the Academy are expected to swim in the club championships and County development galas as well as a number of external open meets suited to their level.


Lastly, we run a Masters section designed for accomplished swimmers over 25 who want to keep fit and possibly compete in Open Water, Triathlon or Masters Swimming Competitions. Brompton Masters swim two mornings a week from 6.30 am for an hour.
