Squad 

Squad is the performance group within the swimming club.  Swimmers should demonstrate the highest commitment and lead by example at all times taking ownership and accountability for their training, working as part of a team with the coaches and parents in order to achieve the best possible chance of peak performance.  

The aim of the sessions are to develop racing performance and optimise physical development through key adolescent development phases and the Optimal Athlete Development Framework.  There is one group land training with core stability and plyometrics for 45 mins a week, members of the squad are also encouraged to do further land training. 

Swimmers must be competing fully on the competition program, county, regional, national chapionships, and level 1 meets, and should be very close to getting qualifying times for national ( Wales, England, Scottish) and British Swimming events.
