Our club was founded in 1978 with the basic idea of making swimming ‘open to all’ of the younger members of our local community. Nearly 40 years later we’re still going strong, with our team of dedicated volunteers providing quality lessons and training sessions to over 200 swimmers.

 

We swim in the 4 lane 25m pool in Boldon School Sports Centre and the pool in Boldon Community Association. Our membership ranges from non-swimmers (age 5 and over) to the Masters League swimmers (with unlimited age range). Our main sessions run on Mondays when the majority of swimmers attend one of ten sessions with varying abilities. We hold additional teaching and training sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

 

The senior gala will be on Monday 29th, starting at 6.15pm for all length swimmers. Please let us know by next week whether you're attending. There won't be any sessions for width swimmers on that night. More details on the last newsletter (available in the club member section if you haven't seen it).

 

Next week (the 15th) we'll start to collect payments for Swim England memberships (the old ASA). Prices are:

£17   Non-competitive
£21   Competitive (external galas)

A reminder - this covers your insurance to swim for the year. We don't set these prices, and we're actually subsidising the competitive swimmers. Please help us by paying it as early as possible. You have until 9th February. 

 

Our competitive members regularly swim in local and regional galas in the North East, and in some national galas around the country.

 

We are affiliated to Swim England and are an affiliated member of the Royal Lifesaving Society.

 

Our club has held both Swim England's SwimMark accreditation (formerly Swim21) and the Sport England Clubmark accreditation since 2009.
