Swimmers move from the Developments squads into Competitive Skills,
where they aim to further their stroke technique, Skill and Basic
Aerobic development. Swimmers will work towards committing to more
weekly sessions, as well as land training, and long term, aim to
progress into the Performance Age Group Squad.
The squad will follow a competition programme set out by the Assistant
Head Coach, Ben Reid.
Comp Skills train out of Ynysawdre, Pyle and Maesteg pools and have 5
sessions available to them. A 6th session alongside Performance Age
Group is available for swimmers of a certain age and ability – this is
at the discretion of the Head Coach and Assistant Head Coach.
Many of the swimmers in this squad have gone on to be Regional, Welsh
and British Champions!
