Swimming Gold Coast will be hosting a development clinic in January 2023 (final date TBC) at the Gold Coast Sports & Leisure Centre, Carrara. This will be a tailored course for swimmers aged 13-19 years Female and 14-20 years Male, who have achieved or are within 2% of Australian Age (2023) Qualifying Times - when available. Parents are also invited to attend a dedicated parents’ session which will assist in supporting your swimmer (TBC)

The intention of these workshops is to help you prepare for your most important event of the swimming year - or maybe even of your swimming career to date! For some swimmers, this will be your first Australian Age Meet, and for others you may have already taken part in the amazing experience of Australian Age! Your coaches have done a great job to get you to the point of achieving those elusive qualifying times – Swimming Gold Coast would like to support you with those extra 1 percenter’s that can help put the icing on the cake for your performance in April.

Swimmers who meet the eligibility criteria, are asked to submit their expression of interest through the registration link below. You will also need to RSVP for your parent/caregiver who would like to attend. Spaces are limited, so please be sure to RSVP as soon as you can.

Notes

Swim coaches have the ability to request the region to consider additional swimmers to be added to the development camp.  The coach will email the regional committee to request consideration with times of the swimmer.  Parents are to liaise with coaches regarding selection and addition to any development clinic.

A coach of a club who does not have a swimmer selected for the clinic can nominate a swimmer to attend the clinic provided a coach from the club also attends.

The Swimmer Selection Panel may amend these selection criteria at any time at its discretion in the best interests of the swimmers and the development of swimming for the region.

All enquiries are to be direct by email only to development@swimminggoldcoast.org.au
