For swimmers with more severe physical and visual impairments, one of Swim Wales Regional Para-Swimming academies may offer a more appropriate coaching programme.
Each Regional Academy is open to swimmers with a physical or visual impairment wishing to compete within Para-Swimming. Swimmers must be 9 years or over and be able to swim at least 25m using 2 different strokes. There are no age limitations, however, it should be noted that the academies are for competition development training only.
