The City of Cardiff Swimming Club structure has been devised to allow every athlete the opportunity to develop the skill set required to become a champion swimmer. To ensure that at each level of development the young swimmers are exposed to an appropriate level of training, in line with the British Swimming & Swim Wales long term athlete development guidelines.

The Performance Programme

This is the advanced training programme, which is seen as the final stepping stone in the development of swimmers to compete with distinction at a senior level. Swimmers within this programme are expected to show the highest level of commitment, with swimming being their primary activity and focus outside of education.
