The Junior Squad comprises of Development 1 & 2 and Diamond squads. As the swimmer progresses they will move up through the squads. Please click on the links to the left to see the individual squad criteria and objectives.

The club carries out squad reviews every 3-4 months. Swimmers are assessed by coaches against the criteria set out for each squad (see relevant document) over several weeks. Coaches will then decide if any swimmers meet the criteria to progress to the next squad. Parents/guardians will be informed via email if coaches are recommending that their child moves up. All the relevant information (e.g. training schedule and fees) will be provided along with an agreement form. Dates will be given as to when a decision must be made by as to whether they would like to accept the move and when the move will take place. If accepting the move then the agreement form must be returned to coaches before the swimmer can attend training sessions with their new squad.
