The Skills Challenge is a regionally and nationally aligned assessment of technical development, providing athletes with a means by which to measure progress and identify areas for development.
Bluefin’s Skills and Development Squads will be assessed on 5 skills which will take place during each cycle (September to December, January to April, May to July) with the best results being submitted on completion within each cycle.
Athletes will receive a certificate following submission of the results at the end of each cycle and Swim Ireland will publish the ranking top 5 athletes Regionally and Nationally.
Push & Glide: Time recorded for a swimmer to perform a push start and maintain a streamline position past the 5m flags.
This assessment was recorded on Wednesday 6th October 2021
