Regional Squad Programme (Ulster) 2022-2023

Regional Squad Programme (Ulster) 2023-24


Swim Ireland Performance will operate a three-tiered Regional Squad Programme encompassing a Skills Academy for age group athletes, a Development Squad for youth athletes and a Pathway Squad for senior athletes.  A Regional Squad athlete can potentially be a member of the Skills Academy for three years before progressing to the Development Squad which provides support to athletes as they aim to achieve international selection within a one to four-year period.  Consideration will also be made in regards to older athletes with a Regional Pathway Squad, providing motivation and encouragement to athletes targeting events with an older age profile identified via the ‘On Track’ system. The Programme aims to support athletes as they aim to reach their full potential at Senior National and/or International Level.

The information is provided for swimmers, coaches and parents. To find out more about the Regional Programme please click on the links or contact Mark Craig via [email protected]
