Highland Swim Team is part of a pathway program to elite swimming. Each stage of a swimmer’s development is catered for in the training they are given. To enable this each swimmer is assigned to a squad that is right for their stage of development. In addition the lead performance development coach may assign additional training on an individual basis.
The following is a list of our squads with links to their full descriptions and criteria for joining.
This squad will host the future performance athletes of HST. It is expected that this squad will act as a “top up” for those who, within their home club, require additional training time or additional skill development. Access to this squad will be in based on each athletes performance within their home club.
There will be no major competitive focus within this squad only the focus on the technical, psychological and team work standard needed to progress to the next level.
