The Academy 3 Squad is designed to develop & build on skills learnt in the previous Academy Squads which will equip them in readiness to move up the swim club pathway into REgional Performance 1. The squad is for swimmers aged between 7-12 years who are competent in all four strokes and are showing a willingness to compete in competitive swimming.

The Academy 3 Squad offers up to 2 hours of swimming training per week in accordance with British Swimming’s Long Term Athlete Development plan.

Attendance criteria

Swimming is a skill based sport with many complex actions to each of the four strokes. Swimmers that attend 2 sessions & over 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.
