Advancement of swimmers will be done at the end of the SC or LC Seasons. Some swimmers may not meet every criteria for advancement. However, based on many factors such as fitness level, age, maturity, squad cohesion and attendance coaches may place swimmers in a more or less advanced squad if it is more beneficial to the swimmer. All advancements are at the discretion of the coaching staff.
