1 PLANS FOR

2 1) EVALUATE 2013 – 14 2) WHERE CAN WE IMPROVE 3) CHANGES TO COMPETITION STRUCTURE & 2014 – 15 PROGRAM 4) SQUAD RESTRUCTURE 5) HOUSEKEEPING 6) ANY QUESTIONS?

3 1) YET AGAIN MORE QUALIFIERS AT ALL LEVELS OF CHAMPIONSHIPS 2) COUNTIES 71 IN 2013 – 82 IN ) REGIONALS 68 IN (Winter & Summer) – 72 in ) NATIONALS - 10 IN 2013 – 16 IN ) COMMONWEALTH TRIALS (3 SCOTTISH, 4 ENGLISH – 2 in 2013) 6) BRITISH INTERNATIONAL OPEN MEET (6 – 1 in 2013) 7) A & B ARENA LEAGUE TEAMS PROMOTED

4 WE HAVE LOST TOUCH IN 1 TO 1’S WITH PARENTS AFTER THE INITIAL SEASON START AND ALTHOUGH FREQUENT MEETINGS ARE DONE WITH SWIMMERS AFTER THE MEETS WE NEED TO ENSURE NEXT SEASON THE COACHES OF THE TOP 3 SQUADS HAVE PLANNED MEETINGS THRU THE SEASON. THESE MEETINGS WILL BE AS FOLLOWS 1) LATE AUGUST / EARLY SEPTEMBER TO SET SEASON GOALS & EVALUATE 2013 – 14 SEASON 2) DECEMBER TO EVALUATE SHORT COURSE SEASON & RE-EVALUATE GOALS 3) LATE APRIL TO SEE IF GOALS HAVE BEEN HIT AND/OR RESET TARGETS

5 LOG BOOKS HAVE NOT BEEN MAINTAINED BUT AS PART OF SWIM21 AND FOR MAINTAINING CONTINUOUS FEEDBACK TO SWIMMERS & PARENTS THEY WILL BE BROUGHT BACK IN FOR WITH A MONTHLY CHECK THE DATES FOR THESE CHECKS WILL BE INCLUDED ON YOUR COMPETITION CALENDAR

6 NEW CHANGES TO COMPETITION STRUCTURE WILL REQUIRE NOT ONLY A SLIGHT RESTRUCTURE FOR THE SQUADS BUT ALSO A CHANGE IN MENTALITY FROM EVERYONE INVOLVED (COACH, SWIMMER & PARENT)

7 NATIONAL SWIMMERS WILL NOW BE GRADED ON RANKINGS AND NOT TIMES. TOP 30 BRITISH TO THE BRITISH NATIONALS THEN EACH HOME NATION WILL THEN HAVE THEIR OWN TOP 30 FOR THEIR NATIONALS. A QUALIFYING WINDOW WILL BE APRIL / MAY. THIS MEANS COMPETITIONS PRIOR & AFTER THE WINDOW WILL MEAN SWIMMERS RACING WHEN TIRED WITH THE EMPHASIS ON TACTICS & SKILL RATHER THAN TIMES. HOWEVER TIMES ARE NOT TOTALLY IRRELEVANT & WE WILL BE PLACING A TARGET OF GETTING A NEW PB BUT WITHIN 3% OF PB AS ACCEPTABLE. THIS WILL REQUIRE PARENTS & SWIMMERS TO KNOW THE RELEVANT BEST TIMES – REMEMBER SWIMMERS HAVE TWO PB’S FOR EACH EVENT, ONE SHORT COURSE AND ONE LONG COURSE DO NOT COMPARE THE TWO, CONVERSION TABLES HAVE ONLY BEEN OUT TO HELP CONVERT FOR ENTRY INTO COMPETITIONS IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GO THAT TIME. AS SWIMMERS GET OLDER THE DIFFERENCE IS MORE NOTICEABLE DUE TO SPEED AND POWER OF TURNS.

8 SWIMMERS WILL NOW HAVE TO LEARN THAT THEY CANNOT GO ROUND CHASING TIMES ALL YEAR ROUND. THEY WILL NOT ONLY HAVE TO LEARN TO DO A PERIOD OF CONSISTENT TRAINING BUT WILL NOW HAVE TO BE ABLE TO PEAK AT A CERTAIN TIME OF THE YEAR.

9 AT THE TIME OF THIS PRESENTATION THE INFORMATION WE HAVE IS THAT SWIMMERS WILL ONLY HAVE THE FIRST TWO COMPETITIONS IN APRIL/MAY COUNT TOWARDS THE RANKINGS. IF THIS IS THE CASE THEN WE WILL PEAK FOR OUR EASTER MEET IN APRIL AND THEN AT NORTHAMPTON IN MAY. FOR REGIONS WE WILL ONLY DO RELAYS UNLESS. DUE TO EXAMS THE NORTHAMPTON MEET IS A NO GO, THEN THAT SWIMMER CAN ENTER INDIVIDUALS AT REGIONS.

15 DUE TO COMPETITION RESTRUCTURE WE NOW NEED TO FOCUS ON DOB AS OF 31 ST DECEMBER AND HAVE A PERFORMANCE SQUAD BASED ON 14 YEARS ABOVE. HOWEVER WE ALSO NEED TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE RIGHT TRAINING ENVIRONMENT FOR THOSE ‘LATE DEVELOPERS’ AND SWIMMERS WHO AT THIS STAGE OF THEIR DEVELOPMENT ARE UNABLE TO HANDLE THE DEMANDS OF THE PERFORMANCE SQUAD.

16 FROM 8 TH SEPTEMBER THE 14 YEARS AND ABOVE (DOB 31 ST DECEMBER 2015) FROM THE TOP 3 SQUADS WILL GO INTO 2 SQUADS. SQUAD 1 – PERFORMANCE SQUAD 2 – PERFORMANCE DEVELOPMENT 13 YEARS AND BELOW WILL REMAIN IN COMPETITIVE DEVELOPMENT GOLD

17 THE SQUAD WHERE YOUR CHILD WILL SWIM AND THE SESSION TIMES WILL BE ISSUED WEEK COMMENCING 21 ST JULY. UNTIL THEN PLEASE DO NOT LISTEN TO THE RUMOUR MILL. AFTER RECEIVING NOTIFICATION IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION PLEASE DIRECT IT IN THE FIRST INSTANCE TO YOUR CURRENT SQUAD COACH. IF THEY ARE UNABLE TO ANSWER OR ARE UNABLE TO THEN COME TO MYSELF

18 ANY QUESTIONS?
