Divers in the National Squad (Team Y) are selected from the National Assessment Camp and are between 12 and 15 years old.
To be considered for invitation to the National Assessment Camp, a diver must have first competed at the GB Junior Elites.
The Assessment Camp will typically run in September at the start of the season.
Selection to the squad will require a pass in a number of technical and physical areas:
- Performance GB Junior Elites – Invited to join the camp
- Physical Testing (Gymnastic Routine + Physical Tests).
- Physio Assessment
- Entry Test – consistency
- Bouncing skills test 3m – consistency, awareness & control
- Required dive test platform OR springboard (six dives) – group fundamentals
- Squad staff observations
