We are a very open club with about 140 swimming members aged from 7 to 18.
Juniors sessions typically have one teacher for every 5 children and focus on stroke development. The senior sessions tend to have one teacher for every 15 children and focus on developing technique and stamina.
The children take part in events such as Swim England distance awards from one length to 3 miles and these are awarded annually, as well as learning about water safety and timed events for certificates (although these are not compulsory).
The club does run other fun events such as relays, either internally or with other clubs, and are willing to look at anything if there is enough support. In 2014, 20 members swam in the Sainsbury Swimathon raising over £2,000 for charity - a great achievement.
