Five Young Amateur Swimming Club members have been selected in 2020 development squads.

The Southern Inland Swimming Association announced its squads earlier this month which include Young's Abbey Hall, Caitlyn Williams, Hugo Davidson, Mia Davidson and Thomas Grainger.

"Our swimmers have done amazingly to make it this far with no availability during the winter. Abbey swam at state during November last year and she only had only had full on training for one month. She'd been going to Cootamundra on and off throughout winter, but she can't do that everyday like she'd train here at the beginning of the season," Young Swimming Club president Nathan McEvoy said.

The development squads for the Southern Inland Swimming Association includes a national age representative squad, senior age representative squad, and junior age representative squad.

Abbey has been selected in the seniors, while Caitlyn, Hugo, Mia and Thomas will participate in the junior development squad.

"We're not sure what's happening with camps this year. Usually there would be a few camps in Albury or Wagga with coaches who will do work with the kids," Mr McEvoy said.

A number of Young swimmers were also recognised in the Bio Island Australian Junior Excellence results released early this month. Results can be found here.
