Super Regional Talent Squads

The Super Regional Talent Squads (SRS) ensures a seamless transition for athletes moving through the talent pathway, emerging from Regional Talent Academies (RTA) and moving onto England National Talent Squads (ENTS).

These athletes take their first steps towards ownership and autonomy in training and racing as they develop technical competencies and skills whilst gaining education of psychology, strength and conditioning, nutrition, and performance lifestyle.

There are currently three Super Regional Squads; Southern, Central and Northern. They are supported by a programme of coaching through weekly and weekend training sessions at several of the main slalom sites in the UK.

The SRS Squads are selected in Winter and reviewed in Spring each year.
