Programmes provide tailored events and development pathways for swimmers of all abilities. We also work closely with other delivery agencies to ensure good quality provision exists locally for everyone to enjoy.

Unfortunately due to the current Covid-19 situation, all of our swimming events have been cancelled until 2021. Please follow Government guidance on the most up-to-date advice and adhere to Swim England guidance on returning to the pool when it is safe to do so.
