SQUAD TARGET PERFORMANCE CRITERIA FOR ENTRY INTO BRONZE DEVELOPMENT

Squad criteria and moves are now based on a number of differing criteria and test sets, with a points based system, to ensure that the swimmers who aspire to continually improve will be given the opportunity to do so. Swimmers who have the most credits will be invited to swim in the next squad and all squad moves are at the coaches discretion.

Credit (points) will be given for the following:

  • Attendance averaging > 67% of sessions
  • Development of good technique/skills (per stroke)
  • Approval (for squad move) from all coaches involved
  • Aspire to swim at the next level /compete in open meets
  • Development of good training etiquette

Credit will be also given for completing each of the following test sets (in normal training sessions) to ensure the swimmer can cope with the next level of training:

  Test sets – all demonstrating required technique

  • 6 x 100m Freestyle @ 2:40
  • 10 x 25 Fly with fins @ 60  
  • 10 x 50 Backstroke @ 1:30
  • Good Breaststroke technique - (‘Lift’ in the stroke)

Maximum age of 11 years.
