Albatross Right Track is the first stage of competitive squad training. Divers who show an aptitude and interest in becoming involved in training for competition can trial for a place in the squad.
Albatross Right Track divers are introduced to wet and dry training and develop skills following the themes and practices filtered down from:
- British Diving Single System (a system of coaching consistent dive skills and techniques to ensure a solid basis for the development of more complex skills throughout a divers career)
- The England Talent Pathway
- Swim England Dive Talent Development Centres.
When ready these divers are introduced to competition by taking part in regional club events such as The Gavin Brown Novice event in Southampton and The Luton Novice challenge.
During training Right Track Divers progress through seven stages which are overseen by the lead coach. Once they have successfully completed stage 7 they may apply to progress to The Skills Squad.
