Phase 2 selections named for Swim England National Event Camps

100 talented swimmers and para-swimmers have been selected for Phase 2 of the Swim England National Event Camps. The group of 15-16-year-old athletes were selected based on their performances from the Festival of Swimming and the 2021 Swim England National Winter Championships.

The selections have been described as a ‘significant step towards creating an inclusive and fully integrated talent pathway’.

The athletes will now experience a mixture of training sessions, educational workshops and physical screening, as well as an event-specific camp to be held in Birmingham later this year.

There will also be an exciting opportunity to race at the Commonwealth Games Test Event at the Sandwell Aquatics Centre which is planned for May 2022.

The youngsters selected will receive bespoke training support and athlete development from a number of specialist head coaches. These are Dan Pilbrow (form & individual medley), Emma Collings-Barnes (freestyle), and Marc Foster (open water).

Additionally, 15 skills coaches will accompany the head coaches and assist in the delivery of the event camps to the athletes.

‘Fully integrated talent pathway’

Tom McManus, Swim England national talent officer, said: “These selections include swimmers and para-swimmers which is a significant step towards creating an inclusive and fully integrated swimming and para-swimming talent pathway ahead of the new season in September 2022.

“Phase 1 of the National Event Camps saw a selection of 161 athletes access an interactive online education last November which was led by our practitioners and supported by our talented coaching team. All athletes showed fantastic engagement and willingness to learn and develop themselves both as athletes and individuals.

“The camps in Birmingham will be held in February and consists of pool and land training sessions as well as educational workshops and physical screening. Attendees will learn more about themselves, both as athletes and as people, and apply these learnings back into their daily training environments to support the remainder of their swim season.”
