Gold Squad

This group is the third stage of the South Aberdeenshire Coaching Programme and the first step of the ’Advanced Training Programme’. This squad is designed to further supplement training and bring together swimmers from each of the different locations.

Swimmers will enter the Gold stage of the South Aberdeenshire Swimming structure following successful completion of the Silver Training Programme. All swimmers within the Gold stage of the progressive pathway will be eligible for consideration to the SAS Junior Squad.

The Gold squad will aim to:

  • Further develop stroke technique and competitive swimming skills.
  • Increase the amount of swimming endurance work undertaken whilst maintaining greatstroke mechanics.
  • Develop the swimmers for competing in a wider range of competitive swimming events.
  • Prepare the swimmer towards achieving success at North District competitions.
