Training will be at higher level than C squad and for more information about criteria and expectations, please see the B Squad Swimmer Agreement. Swimmers will start to understand terminology used in swimming, use more advanced training methods and will do more distance in training. Further you will be expected to adopt a good work ethos. Self-discipline is required from the swimmer to be able to put the dedication in to your sport if you desire to fulfil your potential.
Swimmers in this group will start to work towards DRP (District Regional Squad times) these times will be put forward and looked at by Scottish swimming who make a selection every year from hundreds of other swimmers, who can then be put forward for extra training at North District Level.
Competition is a measure of improvement. Swimmers will be expected to travel to meets away from home, and be competing regularly.
Swimmers Programme will be based on 200m I.M programme along with all individual strokes, and aiming for 200m times by this stage.
Transfer to A squad will depend on attendance levels, commitment to swimming, being mentally ready to take the next step to a higher standard. You should also be aiming at 10%-15% National times as in your agreement.
Some swimmers may be offered a place in a junior fitness squad at this time if they are unable to compete on a regular basis.
