Wombourne Swimming Club offers a swimming programme for children starting at approximately 7/8 years of age. New swimmers are invited to a trial session, where they are assessed by an experienced team of coaches regarding their ability . Once accepted they are taught all the basics of competitive swimming such as stroke technique, diving and competitive turns.

Young, new swimmers are usually introduced into the entry level Junior 1 squad. Swimmers can then progress to Junior 2 squad level until they are generally secondary school age and then on to Senior Squad level. 

All squad changes are assessed at the end of every school term, three times a year, where progression is based on speed, skill, maturity and the coaches discretion.
