Up to 10 athletes. They will be just under the level of Age Group squad that standard a realistic chance of qualifying to the Age Group squad the following year.
Age Group Squad
Up to 12 athletes. Must be aged between 13 and 15 years.
Up to 20 athletes. Includes junior and senior squads.
For the Development and Age Group Squads, athletes are selected from their performances at the National Age Group Championships and a further selection camp following the Championships. The Training Squad holds trials annually, usually in September.
Selection is based on a number of physiological, technical and psychological factors as well as factors such as compatibility and work ethic. If you become a member of one of the Swim England Synchro Talent squads, you will continue to work with your home clubs. But you will also be expected to follow a training plan and attend compulsory training days at a mixture of camps and weekends.
