About the Youth Competition Squad

The Competition squads are designed to give swimmers independence around their training. Split into Age Group Competition | Youth Competition | Senior Competition by age, there is an 
opportunity to train from 2 sessions a week, all the way through to 6 sessions a week (plus additional S&C). The Competition squads are designed to adhere to the specific swimmers needs, whether that is to compete at a high level, carry on improving or to maintain and improve fitness. Independence over how many sessions they do a week gives each swimmer within a competition squad the option to align their training to their specific goals.

Training will be provided to cater for all the specific needs within the competition squads, with the ideology of 'a happy swimmer is a fast swimmer' in mind. Our squad structure is multi functional, as swimmers can move from the competition squads to the performance squads and vice versa.

Swimmers have up to 6 sessions available and up to one hour additional S&C. Swimmers will have the option to compete in Level 1/2/3/4 meets and County/Regional/National competitions should they qualify. Swimmers will be expected to compete in league events / junior galas if selected.

The fee structure is based around the number of training sessions that each individual would like to access. An initial estimate should be taken individually, with the club then monitoring this and informing swimmers if they are (on average) exceeding or under the number of sessions that are being paid for.


Monthly training fees for the Youth Competition squad are £31.00 to £51.50 (dependent upon number of training session).
