Members are assessed and allocated to a squad based on technical ability, stamina, age and training pace. They are asked to attend training on the day and time allocated for their squad. At the start you will be invited to attend two one hour sessions a week on a Tuesday and Friday. The coaches reserve the right to move members both up and down squads as necessary from time to time and so the day and time you train may vary. As members improve and progress up the squads, they are expected to train with more frequency and for longer periods wherever possible.
Hawick & Teviotdale ASC is also affiliated to the Borders Elite Swim Team (BEST). When a member meets the minimal standard and age requirements, and if they so wish, they can have a trial with BEST to see if they want to pursue elite performance training and competitions.
