XLR8 is a motivational program where swimmers score points across a combination of events and are ranked nationally on their performances. The program recognizes versatility and all-round ability, rewarding correct application of the processes necessary for long term athlete development.

Why XLR8?

The initial (and ultimate) method of gauging progress for a swimmer is the times they swim for an individual event. To maximize long term athlete development we believe it is better to reward swimmers aged 14 and under by their versatility and all round ability, rather than performance in a single event. The XLR8 program was developed to rank and track swimmers over four events rather than just one.
