Criteria

WFSC are trialling a new Squad Criteria matrix over the next 12 months before formal implementation in September 2019 for the beginning of the 2019/20 swimming season.

The proposed criteria revolves around several key principles:

  1. Swimmers of like training ability training together
  2. Swimmers of similar competitive ability training towards similar aims
  3. Providing objective measures upon which coaches can consider which training group a swimmers should be in
  4. Provide a progressive overall programme for swimmers to work within through their career, which mirrors their competitive aims
  5. Provide a set of key markers that encourage the swimmers to develop good habits, skills and attitudes for themselves & their team mates and thus represent WFSC in a positive light wherever they train or compete.
