Metro South West Development Squads

Information is now available on selection criteria for the 2015 Metro South West Area Development Squads.

This year, Swimming NSW has introduced 2 new squads into the development structure. Both of the new squads will fall under the name "E Squad".
The former Metro South West Novice Squad becomes the first E Squad and caters for swimmers 7-8 years old. The second E Squad will be for swimmers 19 years and over.
