Masters Development Squad

There has been one significant change in the qualification criteria for the Development Squad. Swims published in the most recent two LEN Top 10 swim lists will be considered for inclusion. This means that for the 2013-2014 squad the relevant lists are for 2011 and 2012 ONLY. The reasons for this change are:
1. To make allowance for swimmers who are in the upper end of any age group;
2. To make allowance for swimmers unfortunate enough to have a long term injury;
The criteria and application forms for the Masters Development Squad can be downloaded here from the Irish Masters Swimming website.
