Group Description and Expectations
Regional Select squad is targeted at youth and adult swimmers between the ages of 14 and 25. Swimmers enter this squad from a range of squads within the club and it is considered to be an alternative squad for those who cannot meet or do not want the commitment of the attendance criteria or expectations of other competitive squads within the club.
The squad has five training sessions per week all coached by a dedicated team with occasional opportunities for Friday night long course training at Loughborough University 50 metre pool. There is no minimum attendance criteria, but plenty of opportunity for athletes to progress as competitive swimmers.

- You should be able to swim a minimum of 100 metres non-stop in another stroke.
- You must be prepared to listen to the coaches and complete the sets that the squad is given to the best of your ability. Our coaches work extremely hard to give us appropriate training.
