Tasmania’s brightest swimming prospects are rewarded for a wonderful past 12 months by being selected into the Swimming Tasmania Development Program.
Selection in the program for the next year provides swimmers and their coaches with the chance to be part of a series of clinics and development opportunities with expert speakers and some of Australia’s best coaches.
To be selected onto one of the three Development Squads swimmers must meet the following criteria.
Gold: Achieve a top 10 Australian ranking as a result of performances at the most recent Australian Age/Open Championships.
Silver: Achieve a top 25 Australian ranking as a result of performances at the most recent Australian Age/Open Long Course Championships.
Bronze: Compete at the most recent Australian Age/Open Championships or at the discretion of the State Head Coach as a result of performances throughout the year.
Full details of the 2018-19 Development Squads are noted below, and we congratulate every swimmer on this achievement.
