Attendance criteria

Swimming is a skill based sport with many complex actions to each of the four strokes. Swimmers that attend between 2 and 3 sessions per week will acquire the necessary skills at an accelerated rate due to the ability to re-enforce the acquired skill before it is forgotten allowing for good habits to be achieved and a new skill to be learnt. We have therefore set a minimum requirement of 2 sessions per week for this squad. Swimmers not meeting this requirement may be moved into a more appropriate squad. Obviously improvement is likely to be faster for swimmers attending all 3 sessions per week
