17 of our swimmers have been selected for the Swindon Swim Squad this year.
This is a massive achievement for our club and I think a record number of swimmers selected.
What is SX3?
In October 2007, Swindon Swim Squad (Sx3) was formed with the objective of enabling the elite swimmers of Swindon based swimming clubs to compete at the highest possible level. The aim was to achieve this by competing as combined teams in the Southern Junior League. The team is made up of the top young swimmers from Highworth ASC, Swindon ASC, Tigersharks ASC and Wroughton ASC.
What events are involved?
There are 4 age groups, 9, 10, 11 and 12 years old. There are individual events for each stroke within each age group and relay events within each age group.
How are swimmers selected?
The swimmers are selected based on their performance at the SX3 development time trial, and times recorded on the ASA rankings database.
