Head Coach Barry Alldrick commented:

"We have a record number of 14 members (athletes and coaches) engaged with the Swim England Pathway for this season.  Each camp/ competition is a brilliant opportunity for athletes to be challenged, to feel proud of what they have achieved so far, and work with more coaches and peers across the country. We look forward to hearing what our athletes have learned and what they can add back to our home programme.  To have athletes selected from three squads shows the depth we are developing and testament to the coaching team"
