Squads

Chester-le-Street ASC is a competitive club and our training programmes have been designed in order to help swimmers progress from absolute beginners all the way to national level competition.

It is worth noting that there are no age limits set against any of the squads and any movement of swimmers between squads will be solely at the coaches discretion. You’ll be sent an email automatically by our membership system if our coaches have set a squad move date for any of your swimmers. This email includes a behaviour contract which you should print off and ask your swimmers to sign.

It is important for parents to notify coaches if swimmers are going to be absent for any length of time. This is especially important for swimmers in the competitive squads.

Some swimmers are selected for further training with Swim England (at a county, regional and national level) and British Swimming on the UK level. Learn about Swim England Progression Routes for eligible swimmers or learn about these programs in Northumberland and Durham.
