We cater for swimmers who have completed wave 5 of the Swim Wales Learn to Swim Framework (or equivalent) and are looking to continue to enjoy swimming and start competing. Swimmers are organised into a training groups and swim in regular, fiercely-contested open meets. We also enter friendly club galas – where the competition is just as keen.

Potential new members and aspiring athletes are warmly invited to enquire about requesting a free trial assessment.

Don’t delay, ask about joining now. We welcome swimmers of all abilities.
