Sports Development - Angus Area/Development Swim Squads

The Angus Area Swim Squad and Development Swim Squad are put together through partnership working between our Sports Development Team, Angus Swimming Development Group, SportTayside & Fife and our leisure facilities.

Both squads aim to compliment the swimmers existing training sessions, provide an opportunity to develop existing skills and techniques and be a stepping-stone towards the District Regional Squad.

The Area squad meets at Arbroath Sports Centre once a month and their sessions consist of pool training or both dry land and pool training.

The Development Squad joins the Area squad every second month and is aimed at swimmers who we hope will progress into the Area Squad in years to come.


The commitment from swimmers to the programme is vital. Swimmers are expected to attend all coaching sessions, competitions and education sessions that will be organised by the coaches and our Sports Development Team.

The swimmers who are part of the Area Squad are also invited to attend joint sessions held at the National Swimming Academy in Stirling. These sessions are attended by the Area Squads from Angus, Perth & Kinross and Dundee. Swimming Coach Gary Vandermeulen leads these joint sessions along with assistance from coaches from the various squads.
