Individual Honours

Over the years Doncaster Dartes athletes have claimed numerous records at Yorkshire and British level. Unfortunately, once those records get beaten they are forever lost. This is our attempt to keep track of which Dartes athlete has claimed records over the years. This list is known to be accurate from 2008 and was started with records owned by Dartes at Yorkshire and British level, there will be many historical records missing. Where available, each record links through to the performance in our results archive. Only the best record is listed where two overlap exactly (i.e. a British record may inherently represent a Yorkshire record too). Only the first record in a sequence of improvements will be listed, unless interrupted by a different athlete.

A stepping stone to national team representation is selection on to the various talent programmes. Dartes athletes have been a regular part of these camps for a number of years. The structure of each changes regularly, but the selection criteria remains rigorous. This list was introduced in 2015.

  Date Who Programme

Of course, none of that happens without our coaches setting the right environment for achieving excellence in swimming. Occasionally that means coaches being called up to work on the England Talent Programme or even more prestigiously, to coach on British teams. Here's where we acknowledge those call ups. Unfortunately, records prior to 2005 are likely to be lost forever.
