Squad - Information

squad info image
Squad is the top group within the club.
To remain in the squad swimmers must work to the highest standards maintaining performance, attendance and meeting the requirements within the squad guidelines. Should swimmers decide they no longer wish to train at such a level they have the option to be moved to another less intense group.
Swimmers in Squad will be encouraged to develop teaching skills through courses such as Club Helper and ASA Assistant Teacher. This will help increase the swimmers understanding of swimming and also give them other skills to use when their swimming career is finished.  If a swimmer decides they would like to help the club then they may be given funding to aid with the cost of the course.
SQUAD swimmers MUST complete a weekly training log each Sunday by clicking the link below.
Squad Coach: Graham Davidson
Squad Rep: Dom Gallagher
