The Swimming WA Performance Pathway Programme underpins Swimming Australia (SAL) and the WA Institute of Sport (WAIS) to provide an integrated pathway for athlete and coach development for prolonged success within the State.
Swimming WA Performance Pathway Programme
Squad activities will be determined on an individual basis by Swimming WA management in consultation with the Swimming WA State Head Coach and the athlete’s home coach. The information will be communicated to athletes upon invitation into the squad as required.
The Swimming WA Performance Pathway squads are determined through qualification times based on national and state performance standards for 14 years to Open. The athlete’s performances qualify them for a particular squad, listed below. Such classification provides recognition of an athlete’s performance relative to their age. Swimming WA Performance PathwaySquad activities, such as training camps and educational programmes, will be designed to align with the athlete’s age, stage of development and training capabilities.
