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.

Swimmers are expected to attend all available pool sessions and land training each week, in line with the Swim England Athlete Development Support Pathway (ADSP) 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 *
