The Swimming Canada National Development Team Program focuses on the identification and development of talent for the purpose of progression to the Senior National Team and International podium success. ID Teams are determined by long course performances only for the purposes of recognition, reward and potential programming opportunities.

Target Groups:
Four Age Categories will be recognized for each gender.

As of December 31st, 2023:

Female 16 years (2007) Male 17 years (2006)
15 years (2008) 16 years (2007)
14 years (2009) 15 years (2008)
13 years (2010) 14 years (2009)

The following points describe the procedures and conditions wherein “ID” Teams are determined:

• Swimming Canada ID Teams will be named based only on Long Course performances
• Swimmers will be ranked according to the Swimming Canada National Development Program ID Team Times

1. Spring Selection
ID Teams will be named in May based on LC performances from Canadian competitions achieved during the Spring peak performance window – March – April 2023.

2. Summer additions
Swimmers will be added to the ID Teams based on LC performances from Canadian competitions or attained while competing on a Canadian National Team achieved during the Summer peak performance window – July-August 2023.

NOTE – Being named to an “ID Team” does not automatically qualify a swimmer for selected National Development Team Program initiatives.

NOTE – These ID times are not to be considered the official Swimming Canada On Track Times, because there are ages identified outside of the official On Track age range.
