TAPS Squad

2016 TRAIN | ACHIEVE | PERFORM SQUAD (TAPs)

One of the key goals of Swimming Waikato’s TAPs squad is to create a sustainable pathway that ensures Swimming Waikato consistently produces swimmers and coaches on SNZ pinnacle teams by 2020-2024.

The key areas that have been identified to ensure that we are successful with this goal are –

  • Ensuring an alignment between our swimmer pathway and that of Swimming New Zealand’s High Performance programme.
  • Facilitating the development of technically and physically capable swimmers with a passion for succeeding in swimming on the national and world stage.
  • Facilitating the development of technically excellent coaches to deliver excellent coaching programmes within their club environment and lead Regional and National swimming teams.
  • Ensuring there are opportunities for swimmers and coaches within the swimming community to access this pathway.

Swimming Waikato’s TAPs programme starts at the age groupings of 13-15, then builds through 16 years to 17+ years and the selection criteria is detailed below.

Congratulations to our 2016 Train | Achieve | Perform Squad (TAPs) members.
