National Squad Selection Process
Following a thorough review and consultation process, Swim Wales are pleased to announce the publication of REVISED 2020/21 selection procedures for:
- Swim Wales National Squad Programme, including National Senior Elite,National Elite Development 1&2 and National Youth Development 1&2 squads.
- Swim Wales National Skills Academy
- Swim Wales National Para Performance Centre
The 2020/21 procedures have been revised due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the effect on competitive opportunities between the 16th March and August 2020. The revised procedures aim to maintain the integrity of the original procedures, published on the 11th March 2020, while providing the greatest possible opportunity for athletes to gain selection given the exceptional circumstances arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Swim Wales have recently announced a series of National Squad Education and Engagement sessions for athletes selected to the 2019/20 programmes, and Swim Wales remains committed to providing an inclusive, progressive and highly effective National Squad pathway in 2020/21 and through the challenges ahead.
Any queries in relation to any of these procedures can be sought by club head coaches only, by contacting the National Performance Director, Ross Nicholas
On behalf of everyone at Swim Wales, we thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.
National Performance Director, Swim Wales
