Wombourne Swimming Club was founded in 1985 by Don Porter, who was our Head Coach for 20 years.
Since our foundation, we have become one of the leading teams in the region, competing against many other teams from Staffordshire, the West Midlands and all over the country.
The Club competes in the Staffs League, Mercian League, and Nuneaton & District Junior League.
Our affiliation to the ASA also enables the club and individuals to enter open meets and galas across the country and progress to County, Regional and National Championships.
We train at Wombourne Leisure Centre where we have a 25 metre pool, as well as utilising other local facilities.
We work hard to ensure that we are fast, fit and competitive, whilst making sure that our swimmers of all ages are enjoying their swimming and reaching their full potential.
The Club offers a programme for children from the age of 7 years, where they are taught all the basics of competitive swimming such as stroke technique, diving and competitive turns.
Swimmers can then progress to Junior Squad level generally until they are 12 years old and then on to Senior Squad and Masters.
Our Annual Club Championships during November and December are also a great opportunity for the swimmers to compete for silverware and achieve new personal times.
The Club is fiercely proud of its Swim Mark Network accreditation and maintains a Team of qualified Coaching Staff and a strong proactive Committee made up of parents and swimmers. All Coaches, poolside helpers & volunteers are DBS checked per ASA requirements.
The Club also has firm ties with Salamanda Swimming Academy, which offers additional technique sessions as well as beginners lessons for non-swimmers.
