As these swimmers improve in their ability and stamina they can advance through the Development sessions and move up to the Carlton Forum Swimming Club Squad at the Chief Coaches discretion. Development swimmers are urged to do multiple weekly sessions under our multi-swim scheme – this will help the swimmer move through to squad more quickly with increased training.
Swimmers from the age of 9 years are expected to represent the Club in competitive galas, as well as having the opportunity to swim in the Clubs Championships, which are held on a yearly basis.
