Rushmoor Regional Beacon Programme 2014 - 1st year

There are only 4 BEACON synchronised swimming Clubs in England: Bristol, Leeds, Reading and now Rushmoor.

A network of Regional Beacon programmes throughout England are being set up to offer extended training and educational opportunities to identified swimmers as part of the ASA’s investment in the swimmer development pathway.

Through this programme swimmers will have access to extended training sessions delivering a syllabus in line with the England Talent Development Squad, including the same testing, protocols and technical work, under the direction of the Regional Beacon Coach. The programme will also involve an education programme including land training and athlete support services.

As part of Beacon, the Club has to run a regional programme once a month from January through to June - our region is Surrey, Kent, Hampshire and London. The focus of the regional programme will be to select 10 - 12 athletes per Beacon, that either didn’t quite make it onto an England Squad trial or the next best athletes born in 2001, 2002 and 2003. The country has been split into 4 sections and the clubs/athletes divided up appropriately.

We have 4 RUSHMOOR GIRLS on this programme: Zayna Gallacher, Carys Morgan, Ella Rose and Zelah Poole.
