Swimmers should be totally committed to their sport & be ready to accept tougher challenges. For more information about criteria and expectations, please see the A Squad Swimmer Agreement.
Every swimmer within the squad will be working towards achieving North District Squad times and progressing to National times. You will be expected to make use of all available pool sessions. Swimmers will be expected to compete in at least 8-12 competitions per year and you should be aiming for 5% National times as in your agreement.
Swimmers need to take ownership and responsibility for their training and how they approach it in the water; their behaviour in the pool should be exemplary. Any squad swimmer should all have the same mind set and be ready to support each other and push each other on in training. Squad swimmers should all be Team Players. In A squad you should understand what team effort is and understand what your fellow swimmers need from you as well as what you need from them.
The Highland Swim Team is the performance swim team of the Highlands. For those of you who would like additional training time or additional skill development, please see their website for further information. Applications to HST can only be submitted by our Inverness Club coaches. HST(Highland Swim Team) . You will have to achieve within 5% of National Times to enter. Times are updated every year and standards will rise every year making the swimmer have to work harder each year to reach their age group level times needed.
Some swimmers may be offered a place in our fitness training squad at this time if they are unable to compete on a regular basis.
