The WRAS program provides high performance coaching and training opportunities to up-skill athletes and assist them in progressing to higher representation within the sport of swimming.

The WRAS swimming program is endorsed by Swimming NSW.

The program sits between local representative swimming and higher order representation such as NSW state team selection.

The 2020 swimming program will run from November 2019 to June 2020 with program selections to be held in September 2019. Athletes will graduate from the program at the 2020 Presentation Night in August.

Nominations for the 2020 Swimming program will open Monday 5 August 2019.

To be eligible for selection in the 2019 program athletes must:

  • be born between 2001 and 2006
  • be living or attending school in the WRAS catchment area
  • be a current financial member of their local association and/or Swimming NSW
  • submit a nomination form before the closing date

The following selection criteria may be taken into consideration during the selection process:

  • Physical attributes and capabilities
  • Results at specific events
  • Technical competence
  • Tactical awareness
  • Potential to improve
  • Competitive ability
  • Individual application
  • Performance and results at specific events
  • Coachability and behaviour
  • Strength and conditioning/Injury prevention screenings and programs
  • Sports science fitness testing
  • Educational seminars
  • Opportunities to compete in elite events such as the Your Local Club Academy Games

The WRAS swimming program is a land program and therefore we do not have a head coach.
