Wyre Forest Swimmers earn International Recognition

On 29th July 2020, Head Coach, Brian McGuinness was pleased to offer congratulations to Rob Darbyshire who is to follow in the footsteps of Adam Peaty, Molly Renshaw, James Wilby, Max Litchfield & Alice Dearing by being successfully selected by the Swim England Talent team to participate in the Aquatic Diploma in Sporting Excellence – Swimming.

The course is delivered by Dudley College of Technology in partnership with Swim England. It is a two-year course which is aimed at talented swimmers, para-swimmers, divers, synchronised swimmers and water polo players.  Previous graduates include Adam Peaty, Paralympic champion Jessica-Jane Applegate, world champion diver Tom Daley, Olympic synchronised swimming hopeful Isabelle Thorpe and Great Britain water polo player Sophie Jackson.

The programme is delivered across the country through face-to-face regional workshops, online learning, progress review visits and an offshore training camp or competition. It covers a range of topics including technical and tactical skills, physical capability, nutrition, psychology, lifestyle, career, communication, health and safety plus culture, values, and behaviour.

Rob was invited to apply by Swim England having met the performance criteria and has an induction early in September.

So, good luck & well-done Rob, this shows that Academia & sports performance can go hand in hand.

On the 10th and 19th August,congratulations were given to both Ryan Bloomer and Lillie Grover on being selected for the National Swim England Development programme.

The England Talent Swimming team are charged with two main goals:

  1. Identifying the most talented young open water and pool swimmers in England as a person, athlete, and performer.
  2. Creating a culture that is safe and positive where athletes are at the centre of all activities to support future podium success.

There are four stages of swimmer development in England, directed at different age groups which are designed to help swimmers reach their maximum potential and eventually step up onto British Swimming’s World Class Pathway where swimmers could become a funded athlete.

As part of the Swim England Development Programme, Ryan and Lillie will be involved in camps involving a mixture of swimming coaching and education which take place between April and December.

Well done to Rob, Ryan and Lillie – doing Wyre Forest SC proud, it seems like WFSC is the place to be to get on if you want to be a top swimmer!
