Athletes identified through the SAL Talent ID process during the Australian Age Championships and medallists who do not achieve the above qualifying times will also be included.  

Age as at the first day of competition in which the selection time was achieved.

Under Swimming Australia’s (SAL) National Talent ID Program, Victoria has identified athletes from the 2017 Australian Age and/or Open Championships to take part in the State Talent ID Squad which will consist of two assessment camps per year.

During these camps, a range of assessments are conducted including swimming performance tests, anthropometry measurements, strength & conditioning tests and physiotherapy screening.

The information gathered from these camps will ensure athletes and coaches are regularly exposed to environments that will help to mould our future champions. Swimming Victoria’s Technical Coaching Head Coach, Rohan Taylor will work with Home Coaches to ensure the ongoing monitoring and development of these athletes, while also positively impacting the daily training environment for all swimmers within the home program.
