The National Flippers Program is an integral part of the Swimming Australia (SA) Performance Pathway.
The SA Performance Pathway is designed to prepare swimmers, coaches and support staff for a seamless transition into our Senior National Teams.
The program includes camps, activities and tours for improving athletic performance, learning about the team’s values and behaviours and providing education around a range of areas. It also includes practical and educational opportunities for coaches and support staff. The program has activities for athletes, coaches and support staff in Olympic pool and open water events and Paralympic events.
The athletes selected in the squad are deemed to be in the window to become members of the Australian Senior Teams in future years.
