ONB County Pathway Programme 


Following the Revised Swim England County Development Programme detailed here , ONB have selected 23 swimmers to take part in the County Development Programme for 2022.  We will look to offer these swimmers (clubs have been notified of swimmer selection) a face-to-face camp and 2 x 1.5hr online education programme by early September 2022.  Zoom inviotes for the online development sessions have been sent, via clubs, to selected swimmers and all 11 year old County qualifiers from the 2022 Championships, and para swimmers.  Swimmers are invited to attend both sessions; each session will last about 1 hour and 30 minutes.  The aim of the sessions are to provide education to a wider cohort of our athletes, whilst also being inclusive of para-swimmers.

The online sessions are scheduled for: Sat 16th July AND Sat 30th July from 6-7.30pm and will be presented by Noel Horton, our outgoing ONB County Team Coach and Head Coach at Maxwell SC.

Please find here powerpoint slides from the session; below is a link to a recording of the Sat 16th July session which all swimmers may access:

We are still working to try and organise a face-to-face camp for the 23 County Selected swimmers and will keep you updated.  If you have any members who would be willing to take on the County Development Camp Administrator role, please contact Nicky Mellings here




ONB County Pathway Programme in Partnership with Swim England (South East) 2021

ONB were thrilled to stage 2, one day County Pathway Programme camps for those swimmers who missed out on the camp in 2020 and swimmers who qualified in 2021. Congratulations to all swimmers.  A huge thank you to Noel Horton (County Head Coach) and his team of fellow coaches, from across ONB, for giving up their time to support and develop our swimmers.

Here are a selection of photographs from the 2021 County Pathway Programme.  All the swimmers thoroughly enjoyed the camps, which included land work, pool sessions and education workshops.
