 New stretch target

We'd love to have our own lane ropes for the pool!

We would also love to be able to open a Masters session for adults.

We would love to be able to hire a dedicated disability coach to support those in our club with additional needs and also attract new members.

Who are we?

We are a dedicated community-based swimming club, committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for local children and young adults to train, develop, and compete. Our ethos is one of inclusivity, encouragement, and openness, welcoming individuals from all backgrounds and abilities. We help to build the foundations for our swimmers to take on their dreams.



Through our tireless efforts, we offer excellent coaching, mentoring, and a secure environment across our four weekly training sessions held at the local council-run facilities. These sessions not only foster swimming skills but also contribute significantly to the mental, physical, and social well-being of our participants. You can not under estimate how valuable and appreciated our club is to young people and their families.


Why are we crowdfunding?

The escalating costs associated with hiring the pool, maintaining insurances, compensating coaches, and managing the club's day-to-day operations have placed us in a precarious position. Despite being predominantly volunteer-run and relying heavily on member contributions, we find ourselves struggling to cover these expenses. Our club serves as a vital anchor for local youth, offering a constructive outlet and promoting healthy lifestyles. However, to continue this invaluable work, we urgently require additional resources. Your support would enable us to procure essential equipment, hire an additional coach, and develop our own merchandise, not only enhancing our club's profile but also generating crucial revenue.


How we’ll spend the money raised

Our club would benefit hugely from the following items.

Development and Gala Coach (to plan for, attend training sessions and attend all gala's ensuring continuity of coaching for our swimmers) £2000 p/a

Flags around the pool area publicising our club £100

Starter Beeper for races £300

Signage/banner advertising our club outside of the leisure centre £600

Club Merchandise - T-shirts, hoodies, drinks bottles with the club name and logo to sell and generate income £2000

Your contribution, no matter how big or small, will make a tangible difference in safeguarding the future of our community swimming club. By investing in us, you're investing in the well-being and development of our local youth. Together, we can keep the spirit of swimming alive in our community.

Thank you for considering our funding bid. Your support means the world to us.
