In these pages are the criteria for each squad in the Bradford Aquatics Competition Swimming Programme. These Squad criteria and reviewed annually and may be changed in August to ensure the best use of available pool space or all swimmers

 In exceptional circumstances swimmers maybe moved into a squad when they do not meet the exact criteria and an individual training plan designed for swimmers particular needs. This decision is made at the Competitive team meetings and will be agreed between the Senior Coach, Development Coach and the Bradford Aquatics Manager and may also involve discussions with the parents / guardians and swimmer.

For each Squad the following equipment is required. Please speak to the Squad Coach if any difficulties with this arise

Swimming Trunks or Swimming costume.
Swimming cap (if normally wear one).
Swimming goggles and a spare pair.
Kick and pull buoy.
Hand and finger paddles (if own them).
