Performance Reviews

Performance reviews will be carried out every six months to monitor swimmers’ progress.  Swimmers who are not meeting the criteria and expectations for the squad will be informed of this, and have a further three months to reach the required standard.  If swimmers are still not meeting the squad’s criteria after the three months, they will be moved to a more appropriate squad for their abilities and ambitions.
