This is a squad for our swimmers who are aged 12+ and who are currently attaining North Midland Qualifying Times. This squad is the link between Development and Juggernaut and is geared towards age group swimmers who would like to continue training and competing to a high standard. In the past a number of swimmers have been promoted from Platinum into Juggernaut and have continued to make excellent progress in the sport of swimming. The sessions are based around skills and technique when training with Development, at certain times of the week Platinum have the opportunity to train alongside Juggernaut. All Platinum swimmers are encouraged to race on a regular basis and represent Winsford whenever selected.
