Weʼre raising £3,750 to help fund a free taster day for the schools in the local community, to introduce them into competitive swimming.

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Our aim is to be recognised locally, regionally and nationally as a swimming club which enables all athletes to achieve their personal goals in competitive swimming by improving their education, skills and fitness levels and by providing regular opportunities for competition.
In order to attain these goals our athletes will have structured training programmes tailored to meet their needs which are lead by qualified coaches and teachers.
We would like to provide a taster day for the local community, tailoring to the age range of 7-17yrs. At this taster session we will provide a day full of fun and exciting skills development, mini races, certificates and medals. This will be to encourage more swimmers into competitive swimming within the community.
We will provide the best environment for training and competition by forging and maintaining links and partnerships with facility providers, local authorities and other multifaceted clubs.
We believe in educating young athletes to provide them with the opportunity to remain in aquatics and develop into teachers/ coaches, so that they can also play a part in developing athletes of the future.
We find opportunities for athletes and volunteers for diverse backgrounds and we are proud to be committed to the principles and practices of equality of opportunity for all our members. Sport should be for all and accessible to everyone in the local community.
