Congratulations to Erin Davies for being selected for the Welsh National Elite development squad. Total of 114 Swimmers and Para Swimmers have been selected to the National Squad programme for 2018/19.

Erin Davies took part on her first Swim Wales National Squad camp in Swansea this weekend. The Swim Wales National Squad Pathway is designed to provide appropriate levels of support to swimmers as they progress through the sport. The underlying principle is that it should support systematic success and contribute to Swim Wales’s performance objective; putting swimmers on the British Swimming pathway and achieving medal success at the major Games.

The Swim Wales National Squad Pathway is a four tiered squad system which is designed to provide progressive and appropriate training, education in relation to the development of World Class stroke technique and race skills, swimming specific physical and physiological development, winning psychological behaviours and performance lifestyle factors. Erin is part of the Elite Development Squad and will benefit from further opportunities throughout the season.
