This is the high performance group with members who have achieved two “A” times in :

  • 100M Freestyle and Breaststroke or Butterfly (50M fly for U11).


  • 100M Backstroke and Breaststroke or Butterfly (50M fly for U11).

The times must be obtained at a competitive gala. Your training sessions will concentrate on maximising your skills and techniques as well as increasing your fitness level.

You will be expected to continue to attend galas and participate in additional activities, such as long course training.

This group is divided into Junior Sharks who attend National School and Senior Sharks who attend Secondary School.

Training sessions are more intensive at this level. Junior Sharks are expected to attend six sessions each week and Senior Sharks are expected to attend seven.

It is hoped that swimmers will go on to achieve Division 2, Irish Age Group times or the National Open Championships
