COMPETITIONS – To help develop swimmers through competing each of the entry info forms will include a guide on which events to enter. Swimmers only really start to specialise around 16 years of age. Prior to this and especially at younger ages (Junior Squad onwards) swimmers should have an holistic approach and enter various events and distances with a focus on 200IM swimming. Please read the entry info carefully and always try to follow the guidelines on which events to enter. There will always be options for the swimmers i.e. at a competition with a full range of events swimmers would be asked to enter at least one from each of the following categories:

  1. Sprints (any 50m event)
  2. 100’s (any 100m event)
  3. 200 stroke or form (200 butterfly, backstroke or breaststroke)
  4. Freestyle (200, 400, 800 or 1500 freestyle)
  5. IM (200 or 400 IM)

By entering at least one event from each of the above categories there is a wide range of challenges and experiences. All great athletes have experience.
