Youth Development Squad Camp

The Youth Development Squad (YDS) Programme for 2014-15 kicks off this weekend with a two-day camp based at the ASV Aquatics Centre in Aberdeen.

44 swimmers from 22 clubs will be in attendance for a programme of training and education led by Commonwealth Games coach Mat Trodden (University of Edinburgh). Mat will be assisted by Kris Gilchrist (Warrender Baths), Danielle Brayson (Dumfries Dolphins) and John Szaranek (Carnegie) with further support from coaches representing 13 clubs from across the country.

An additional 17 coaches will be in attendance for training towards their UKCC Level3 Coaching Swimming qualification and a workshop is running on the Sunday for the parents of YDS swimmers which will cover aspects of swimmer-development relevant to this age-group.
