Our club was founded in 1978 with the basic idea of making swimming ‘open to all’ of the younger members of our local community. Over 35 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 (part of the sports academy) 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.

 

Sorry but there will be no sessions in either pool this Friday (24th October). This is due to having too many volunteers away at the National Masters Championships. Good luck to everyone who is swimming at the weekend!

 

Half term hours:

Monday 27th: 7-8pm training and lane teaching (open to anyone who usually swims between 6.30-9pm on a Monday)

Wednesday 29th: 7-8pm training

Thursday 30th: 7-8pm training and lane teaching

 

 

 

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

 

Our club has held both the Swim21 mark of excellence as a teaching and skill development club, and the Sports England Clubmark accreditation since 2009.

 

We are affiliated to the Amateur Swimming Association and are an affiliated member of the Royal Lifesaving Society.
