National Coach, Alan Lynn, said of the nominations,

“We are delighted to nominate these swimmers to Commonwealth Games Scotland. Swimming in the Commonwealth is a challenge with several of the world’s leading swimming nations to compete against. Racing in the Bahamas will be tough and we look forward to seeing these young swimmers learn from the experience and, hopefully, transition to Scottish and British senior teams in the future.”

Any appeals should be made by Monday 1st May 2017, to which Scottish Swimming will respond by 5pm on Tuesday 2nd May, 2017.
