Potters is our Pre-Otters development squad


Working towards level 6 ASA awards

Moved from lessons to club

Swimmers are expected to:

Have goals of mastering all four strokes legally (following the rules of the sport)

Attend at least 1 sessions per week, ideally both

Arrive on poolside 10 minutes before each session to warm up effectively, be briefed on the session, and receive any relevant news and information

Be 100% committed in every training session

Bring their own goggles, water bottle and hat to training sessions


Performance Reviews

Performance reviews will be carried out every month to monitor swimmers’ progress, initially by Adam but overall decision to move would lay with the Head Coach.
Swimmers who are not meeting the criteria and expectations for the squad, the parents / carers will be informed of this, and have a further three months to reach the required standard. If swimmers are still not meeting the squad’s criteria after the three months, they will be moved to a more appropriate squad for their abilities and ambitions.
