Welcome to Scottish Swimming's Performance Swimming section. Browse this site to find out all you need to know about Performance Swimming in Scotland.
Sport in general is at a very exciting time with the Olympic Games coming to London in 2012 and then the Commonwealth Games to Glasgow in 2014.
Bouncing off the back of a successful Commonwealth Games in Delhi 2010 there are high hopes of continued success on the World stage including the World and European Championships plus the Olympic and Commonwealth Games.
Scottish Swimming currently has 692 swimmers within the Performance squads which are broken down into Gold, Silver and Bronze tracks with senior (17 years and older) and junior elements (16 years and younger) of each track.
The Senior Gold Squad includes our Commonwealth Games individual medallists of Hannah Miley, Robbie Renwick, Michael Jamieson and David Carry plus a host of other exciting and talented swimmers from clubs across the country.
The Junior Gold Squad (Youth Squad) includes young Commonwealth Games representative Sara Hamilton (South Aberdeenshire) and other rising stars such as Scottish National Backstroke Champion Fiona Donnelly (Nova Centurion) and British Youth & Age Group Champions Craig Benson (Warrender Baths Club), Mark Szaranek (Carnegie SC) and Jordan Hughes (North Ayrshire).
Other squads are Senior Silver and Senior Bronze with the Youth Development Squad and District Regional Programme Squads completing the structure.
Swimmers gain selection to the squads by means of qualification standards which can be achieved at the many Licensed Competitions around the country and also outside Scotland.
The competition structure includes Open Meets organised and run by clubs, District Championships and Scottish National Events such as Age Group Championships, Winter Short Course (25m) Championships and Summer Long Course (50m) Championships.
