Swim Wales launched the evolved National Squad Programme in January 2022.

The Swim Wales National Squad Programme is designed to provide appropriate levels of support to talented swimmers and para-swimmers as they progress through the sport. The underlying principle is that it should support systematic and not accidental success. Swim Wales’s performance objective is the key driver; putting swimmers on the Aquatics GB / Aquatics GB Para Swimming pathway and achieving medal success at Commonwealth, European, World and Olympic/Paralympic level.

The Swim Wales National Squad Programme aims to provide a progressive and inclusive National Squad pathway in line with the Swim Wales Performance Mission – ‘To support the holistic development of swimmers and para-swimmers to achieve their full potential, aspiring to achieve podium success at Commonwealth, Olympic and Paralympic level.’

These selection procedures for swimming and para swimming outline the Swim Wales National Squad Programme selection guidelines for the 2024/25 season, including selection to the Swim Wales National Elite, National Elite Transition, Senior Performance, Youth Performance, and Performance Foundation programmes.
