Although we are still waiting to hear when pools may be allowed to reopen, our coaching team are already starting to prepare for our return to the water. We are a club that is changing year on year and to reflect those changes in size and competitiveness our head coach Benoit has reviewed the existing structure and made some updates that will take effect as soon as we start training.
There are more details on the Squad Structure page.
Please review the PDF download that contains the plan of the new structure and the updated individual criteria for each squad. Although many of the squad names remain the same, the entry criteria may have changed so please take your child’s year of birth and consider all squads for which they could be eligible. For example, a swimmer born in 2006 could be in Cadets, Juniors, Minimes or Elites.
Movement between squads will be based on age (year of birth), entry criteria (where appropriate) and attendance during the active part of the 2019-2020 season and will be communicated to individual swimmers prior to us starting training. Swimmers eligible for more than one squad may decide not to become part of a squad and will therefore be directed to a different squad according to their motivations.
Please direct any questions towards Benoit (BSSC Head Coach).
