Hours per week: 7 + 1 hour land training
This squad is a progression from the Competitive Squad following Head Coach assessment of ability, trainability and potential to progress to the Performance 1 squad. Swimmers may be invited to additional early morning sessions or long‑course training sessions by the Head Coach.
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 the Devon County Championships and ASA South West Championships.
Swimmers must regularly attend all 4 pool sessions each week and land-training, 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 *
