Performance Squad

This is an invite only squad

This is the top squad at Ashford Swimming Club for swimmers 14 and over where all swimmers will show motivation to improve, show leadership qualities and train to their best potential.

Swimmers will be introduced to harder programmes specifically designed for the group. Land training will also be incorporated into sessions. Swimmers will be expected to complete the sessions to the best of their ability and always look to improve themselves.

On a regular basis swimmers will be assessed on attendance, behaviour, training and competitive performance.
