About Us

Established in 2021, we offer a fun, friendly environment, providing high quality coaching enabling swimmers to reach their maximum potential.

We provide a complete pathway of coaching and support to enable children who have completed Swim England Learn to Swim Stage 7 to progress through to a competitive club squad.

We also offer masters sessions for adults, from beginners and those wanting to improve their swim ability through to experienced swimmers.

Swimming is a lifelong skill and our supportive club environment aims to promote friendships that can last a lifetime and provide personal development opportunities for those wishing to become involved in a community club.

Training sessions run on five days of the week with monthly membership options available.
