"Supporting swimmer's in achieving their goals"
We are Swim 21 accredited in Teaching, Skill Development and Masters with a team of ASA qualified coaches and teachers supporting swimmers from Learn to Swim to National standard.
We recognise that swimmers can have different aims within the sport and therefore look to create an environment that supports swimmers in achieving their goals whilst having fun and being part of a team.
