Swimming trainings are based around a coached squad system. We hope this makes it easier to cater for your needs!
This squad is for those of you who are just starting out or simply want to improve the basics of your technique. 'Dev squad' gives you the opportunity to train up to 3 times per week, at your own pace. These sessions are coordinated by our Development Officer who works with the coach to to maximise your potential and development.
Club squad gives you an opportunity to train up to 7 times per week. This squad is suited towards swimmers who want to work on their fitness and start to look at racing technique. There is no obligation to compete for club standard swimmers, however UWSWP club enters various open meets throughout the year to give all swimmers the opportunity to compete at a range of levels.
The Competitive Squad gives you an opportunity to train up to 9 times a week (including various gym sessions), led by our coach Ben Walker. Ben works with the captains to produce a 10 week training cycle targeting the major university competitions-BUCS short course in term 1, BUCS long course in term 2 and BUCs teams in term 3.
Meet the coaches!
We have a dedicated coach who works with our swimming captains to maintain our fitness and competitive standards.
