Becoming a member of Swimming NSW is the first step towards benefiting from the athlete performance pathway that is in place at the area, state and national level. 

Swimming NSW's 2024-25 Performance Pathway selection criteria are now available. See our Swimming NSW State Squad and State Recognition Programs pages for more information.

Step 1: Area Development Squads

Generally athletes will begin interacting with the performance pathway at the area level.

Step 2: Swimming NSW State Squads

The next level in the athlete performance pathway is qualifying to gain selection in Swimming NSW's state squads.

Step 3: Swimming Australia Squads

With a lot of training and hard work, you may gain selection for a Swimming Australia squad. You can read about their squad selection criteria here.
