Cork Regional Performance Squad.

Based at Brookfield Leisure Centre, the squad is comprised of swimmers and coaches from clubs in the Cork area who have come together to train as a group. Swim Ireland is pleased to support the coaches and swimmers of the Cork Regional Performance Squad and commends the support of Brookfield Leisure Centre. The squad offers young talented swimmers based in the Cork area a chance to develop and train in a positive environment.

The values of a High Performance Programme are nurtured not only at the Performance Centres in Ireland but also within clubs and regional squads. Cork RPS is committed to this endeavour and is an exciting prospect for the future of Irish Swimming.
