Squad Criteria

HPSC is formed of a main competitive swimming club based at Harlow Leisurezone with a Swim School on a Friday night and youth Academy on Sundays.

Swimmers are divided into squads according to their age and ability. Swimmers progress between the squads as they achieve criteria which are set out by the coaches. The criteria and work that the squads do are based around developing the swimmer and give swimmers an opportunity to compete at County, Regional and National level.

Key points

  • Movement between squads will be decided and communicated during the current swimming season, after a competition on the Competition Calander
  • Movements will be based on age (year of birth), meeting entry criteria (where appropriate) and attendance during the 2020-2021 season
  • Swimmers may decide not to become a part of a squad and will therefore be directed to a different squad according to their motivation.
