Swimming NSW State Squads

Underwater picture of swimmers

Swimming NSW's mission for our Performance Pathway Program is to create sustained excellence through a robust program that supports NSW coaches and athletes. To find out more about our vision and objectives, click here.

 

Update: Due to necessary changes to the current swimming season in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, Swimming NSW has reviewed the 2020-21 Performance Pathway Program. We still plan to deliver a program this year, however it will not be in line with the criteria outlined below. Coaches and athletes will be advised of changes to the program as they take place.

Swimmers have been selected into 2020-21 SNSW Squads based on results from the following meets and at the discretion of the SNSW Coaching Director:

  • 2019/20 SNSW Senior Metro Championships
  • 2019/20 SNSW Senior Age Championships
  • 2020 Swimming Australia Open Water Swimming Championships
  • 2020 SNSW Country Championships
  • 2020 SNSW State Open Championships

Selection for these squads have not closed. Swimmers may still be selected throughout the course of the year, as the swimming season recommences. 

Congratulations to all swimmers and coaches who have gained selection so far! For a list of current squad members, see relevant sections below.

 

 

2020-2021 Performance Pathway Program

Olympic Pathway

  • Swimming Australia Podium Categorised Athletes
  • Athletes who are listed on Swimming Australia’s 2020/21 Olympic Program Categorisation list as Podium or Podium Potential will have access to Swimming NSW resources and may request funding to assist with their training and competition throughout the year.  To be eligible for financial support, coaches in collaboration with their athlete must submit an Individual Athlete Performance Plan (IAPP). Funding may be provided to squad members based on their IAPP and as assessed by the NSW Technical Lead. Athletes will be supported for as long as they are categorised by Swimming Australia.

  • NSW Flippers Squad
  • Identifying and developing extraordinary sporting potential is a tremendously exciting journey. Typically it involves a rare blend of coaching art, science, environment and systematic planning. Sporting potential of this kind is often described as ‘gold dust’ - rare, valuable and requiring skilful handling along the journey to transfer into World and Olympic excellence.

    To prepare Australia’s next generation of swimmers for senior performance excellence, Swimming Australia, through the State Technical Directors has thoroughly reviewed the Performance Pathway program. The State and National Talent Program now will be known as Swimming Australia’s ‘Flippers’ program. The program will feature a combination of activities delivered by each State and Nationally with the aim of preparing identified athletes to successfully transition to the pinnacle of swimming in Australia - the Dolphins Swim Team.

  • Performance Squad
  • The Swimming NSW Performance Squad is designed to support high-performing NSW athletes with the potential for Australian Swim Team selection within the 2024 Olympic cycle.

  • Open Water Performance Squad
  • The Swimming NSW (SNSW) Open Water Performance Squad recognises the best National level Open Water Swimmers in NSW. Support is provided to this group with the aim of selection onto the Australian Open Water Swimming team. The squad provides an opportunity for athletes to come together as a group and train and compete specifically for open water swimming.

  • Sharks Squad
  • The Swimming NSW Sharks Squad is designed to identify and provide support for emerging age group swimmers, transitioning swimmers and their coaches. Swimmers in this squad will have the opportunity to:

    • Enhance education, develop skills and gain exposure to varied opportunities away from their daily training environment.
    • Create a supportive environment for talented swimmers to develop their skills and swimming knowledge in preparation for National Team and/or Talent Identification (TID) Squad selection.

    The Sharks Squad will consist of two age groups:

    • Age Squad: Female 13-16 years old, Male 14-17 years old
    • Youth Squad: Female 17-19 years old, Male 18-20 years old 
  • State Teams
  • The Australian State Teams Short Course Age Championship sees each State and Territory from around the Country bring their best up and coming swimmers to Canberra to compete for the title of State Teams Champion. It is a great opportunity for swimmers to race for and represent the Mighty Blues.

  • Regional Squad Project
  • With NSW being a geographically large area, it presents challenges in supporting swimmers and coaches based outside of the Metro area. Swimming NSW (SNSW) has identified that there are many talented swimmers and coaches residing in regional areas. By implementing a Regional Squad Project, support is provided to targeted individuals to enhance skills and technique, whilst providing exposure to a high-performance environment.

    The Regional Squad will encompass two age groups:

    • Males 14 – 18 years and Females 13 – 17 years

    SNSW aims to see progressive performance improvements in this group as the swimmers challenge each other and the coaches impart their learnings onto their home program.
