Junior squads | athloneswimclub

Junior Squad

The only competitions open to this group are Schools Gala and Community Games. Generally we expect swimmers to remain in this group for at least one year and a swimmer must be eight years old or over before they can progress into the ‘A’ Squad. Promotion out of this group will be decided by time trial.

How do I get promoted to the Junior Squad

 

The following are guidelines for promotion: 6,7,8 and 9 year olds may qualify for the Junior Squad by competing in a 25 metre Time Trial. Age 10 and over are not eligible for the Junior Squad. Please note that these qualifying times do not guarantee promotion as there may not be enough spaces to cater for all swimmers.
