Hours per week: 9 + 1 hour land training
This is the training squad for the elite swimmers within the club. Training sessions are available on six days a week including three morning sessions. Access to long‑course training will be offered through our partnership with Eastern Devon Hub Clubs.

Objectives:
Swimmers are expected to regularly compete at Level 1, 2 & 3 Open Meets in both short and long‑course formats. They will be expected to swim for the Club in the Arena League, Inter‑Club gala and other team events. Swimmers should be targeting qualification times so that they can compete at regional and national events.

Commitment:
Swimmers are expected to attend all available pool sessions and land training each week, in line with the ASA’s Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) principles. An enhanced commitment to training is expected from the swimmers in this squad.
* Swimmers who do not attend regularly or who do not display the correct level of commitment will be moved to a more appropriate squad *
