District Regional Programme

                          DRP logo

The District Regional Programme (DRP) is an initiative run by the SASA Districts and the Scottish Swimming Performance Team, under-pinning the National Programme of Senior, Youth and Youth Development squads. It also provides an opportunity for coaches and swimmers alike to develop a greater understanding of many key areas of competitive swimming.

The programme is designed to work along two strands;

The first is to aid the development and education of swimmers aged between 11 and 14 (achieving criteria laid down in the National Selection Policy) along with all coaches working within all clubs.

The second strand is to ensure a communication flow between coaches with all levels of experience, enabling them to have contact and learn from each other.

In 2017 the DRP will be delivered locally in each District to circa 250 swimmers over three days 24th September, 12th November (North and East Districts)/19th November (Midland and West Districts) and 3rd December, and aims to be progressive, motivating, challenging and enjoyable.

Coaches and Team Managers will also attend an Orientation Day on Saturday 26th August.
