Thinking of joining the Swimming Club?
Get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or to request a trial.
Young swimmers aged 12 years and under:
If you are progressing from swimming lessons and have achieved NPTS Stage 6, or if you can confidently swim 25 metres of frontcrawl, backstroke and breaststroke, you can email for a trial and assessment to join one of our teaching groups. A trial is a way to assess the current level of the swimmer and for the swimmer to get a feel of swimming in the club environment before committing themselves.
In the teaching groups we concentrate on developing the 4 main swimming strokes, practicing diving and developing the correct racing starts and turns and the development of both basic aerobic swimming endurance and swimming speed. You can achieve badges as you progress through the groups.
Older swimmers aged 13 years and over:
If you are aged 13 or over, and would like to swim competitively you can email for a trial and assessment with our Development or County squads as applicable:
In the Development squad we introduce a coaching regime based on basic endurance and the consolidations of effective technique, competitive racing starts turns and relay take-overs of the four main strokes.
Swimmers take part in club championships and selected galas and enter open meets and county competitions when criteria are met.
In the County Squad the coaching regimes and intensities are to suit the competitive swimming calendar. Swimmers develop sufficient speed and endurance to undertake moderate to heavy training sessions.
Swimmers take part in club championships, selected galas and enter open meets, counties, south west regionals and nationals when criteria is met.
Adult swimmers aged 18 years and over
If you are aged 18 and over, we have a Masters section for swimmers to improve their technique and endurance in a relaxed environment. Further details can be found under the Masters.
