Chance for young swimmers to make a splash with the Team Bath AS Academy Programme

15 September 2018

Talented young swimmers who would like to take their sport to the next level are invited to a taster session in the University of Bath’s Olympic-sized pool for the Team Bath AS Academy Swimming Programme.

Taking place at the Sports Training Village on Saturday, September 22, it is open to young people aged between eight and 13 who have achieved ASA Swimming Certificate 8-10 through a Learn to Swim Programme, Swim School or from a private swimming instructor, or those who already train in other aquatic sports at an appropriate level.

Team Bath AS provides a structured pathway for local swimmers of all levels to realise their maximum potential from first competitions and galas through to competing at National and International level.

The Academy Swimming Programme, launched in July, offers swimmers the opportunity to advance their competitive swimming skills and increase overall fitness in a local community club environment.

Swimmers on the programme will build their endurance and skills in the pool while also developing the wider knowledge base and practices needed to develop as a successful young athlete.

During the taster session, the Team Bath AS Coaching Team will determine a swimmer’s suitability based on the level of skills, training and previous experience.
