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.

These extra sessions will be primarily to practice starts from the blocks and turns in preparation for the Club Championships.
I hope all our swimmers and their families have a good summer break, mentally and physically recharging the batteries. It is however important to keep base fitness levels up and come back firing and even more motivated for the 2019-2020 season. I will look forward to welcoming each and every one of our swimmers back in September, I am sure the new season will be our best ever. Lots and lots to look forward too, nothing could be better than training and racing for Winsford Swim Team.
