The Performance Pathway Squads are for identified, talented swimmers to have the opportunity to achieve the very highest levels nationally and internationally.

 

Swimmers will train in accordance with Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) guidelines and follow the British Swimming competition pathway. This route is extremely demanding and requires very high levels of commitment by both the swimmer and their family.

 

Swimmers in the Performance Pathway Squads will be expected to display the core values of the Competitive Swimming Programme; these are commitment, ownership, responsibility and excellence. Swimmers demonstrating these values will be given the opportunity and time to achieve their goals.

Swimmers are expected to fully participate in all training activities and competitions; minimum levels are set which if not achieved will lead to the parent/swimmer being challenged. Continued attendance below the minimum level will result in the swimmer losing their place in the Performance Pathway.
