  • Demonstrate the ability to deliver a quality training programme for swimmers with a variety of abilities and aspirations.
  • Develop the club as a whole, working closely with the committee and Learn to Swim Co-ordinator.
  • Attend targeted competitions and develop and maintain our club competition calendar.
  • Liaise with parents and the committee on matters relating to club and swimmers' club development.

We are a friendly and inclusive club, with aspirations to compete at regional and national levels. We swim out of four different local pools.
