The swimming club offers a wide range of opportunities to swimmers up to and including national level. We have 17.5 hours of pool time each week, together with strength and conditioning with dedicated coaches and sports science support. Swimming sessions are available seven days per week. The club is supported by our in house high performance centre (HPC) that includes sports scientists, sports psychologists and nutritionists. The club has three BUCS squads entering national, university, regional and local competitions throughout the year. There is a development squad for those looking to improve their fitness levels, with the aim to moving from club level to a higher competitive swimming level. All squads receive excellent coaching from our full time coach Gary Humpage and assistant coach Joe Dearing. We are a very committed team that offer a fun competitive atmosphere, shown through our team strength and increasing success. The team has competed at BUCS team finals no less than 15 occasions in the past 17 years. Maintaining an atmosphere conducive to performance as enabled our swimmers reach new heights whilst at university. Our team members excel within sport and academically. The club is very excited about the 50m pool and we look forwards to the further success that awaits us.
The club is very exited about moving into our new 50m pool in December 2016. This will enable to increase both performance and participation on all levels.
