Competitive Swimming

We take children from the age of 5, and teach them the four basic swimming strokes in the small pool. They progress to
swimming in the main pool, learning skills such as diving and tumble turns, and develop their

stamina by swimming longer distances. Children can compete in galas from the age of 9, and the Club enter a variety of competitions against other clubs in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

Once a child can confidently swim 25 metres, they can also attend

life saving training. Here, they can acquire a range of skills such as rope throwing and towing, and can also progress to competitive

events if they choose.

Those that excel in either discipline have the opportunity to progress to County, Midland and National level, or hopefully even further!

Children do not need to be able to swim when they join us, we are a teaching club with accredited coaching staff who will encourage your child to fulfil their potential in a positive, friendly and safe environment.
