Unsure if you are ready to join the swimming club?

Why not join one of our talent lanes? Our talent lanes are taught by coaches, who will be able to prepare you for competitive swimming, by working on your stamina, competitive starts, turns and strokes development. The coaches will then be able to advise you when would be best for you to transfer to the swimming club in their junior squad.
