1 North/South Training Squad Squad Aim: ‘To bridge the gap between development club and the performance squad.’ Swimmers can access one session per week either Tuesday morning 6-7:30am in Haverfordwest or 7-8am alternating between Pembroke and Tenby on Wednesday mornings. Times will come into effect immediately and taken since 1 st Sept Times valid to 31st December Times are age at end of year. Swimmers must achieve two times from one age band. Times subject to change, coach reserves the right to improve qualification standards. Swimmers entering the squad must be intent on pursuing swimming (or swimming as a part-discipline) as their chosen sport. This should be given priority over other activities. All invited swimmers must maintain regular attendance at their designated sessions, take advantage of sessions on offer at their development club and fulfil minimum training hours, standards and core sets relevant to LTAD. All North/South swimmers must commit to swimming in relays for Welsh Age Groups, Welsh Summer Nationals and British ASA Nationals if selected. All county swimmers will be expected to enter the Welsh Age Group Championships & British ASA Nationals if qualified. Link spaces will be by invitation only. Those swimmers who achieved qualification times during the 2010/2011 season may be invited to a performance squad session space providing. These sessions will typically be Tuesdays, Thursdays or morning sessions. Where an athlete is of the required standard and met all criteria but there is no space available, the coach reserves the right to invite the individual to sessions as deemed appropriate. Swimmers younger than the minimum age (11yrs girls, 12yrs boys) may be offered a place in the Link squad space depending in morning sessions. With the above criteria coach’s discretion will be exercised; swimmers may be de-selected. Swimmers must achieve and continue to achieve minimum training hours and standards in line with LTAD guidance. Max number = 16. If number of qualifying swimmers is exceeded, the swimmer with the most Graded Times (AAA, AA, A) times will be included Selected swimmers will remain in the squad for one year from the point at which they enter the squad. To re-qualify swimmers must swim the qualifying standard and be training at an acceptable standard before the expiration of their year. It is the responsibility of Development Club to update times for meets other than Welsh Level meets
