The goal of the Swimming Committee is to develop talent and to provide opportunity for swimmers, whatever their ability or age, to achieve their potential.  The Swimming Committee is assisted by 3 sub-committees to run competitions for swimmers aged 11/12 and upwards:-

  • Officials
  • Coaches
  • Masters

In addition to the full range of competitions, the Region also sends a team of swimmers annually to an Overseas Camp.  This camp includes education, training and an opportunity for swimmers to experience competition in an international environment, away from their home club.

Three training camps are run during the year as part of the England Talent Programme, focusing at Regional level on 12 year olds.  These involve specific aspects of stroke development, land training and talks.

The Region organises, assists and helps fund the training of Officials.  We hold CPD seminars and mentoring courses to ensure all our Officials are kept up to date with new developments, and that competitions at all levels are staffed with the correct level of competence.

As well as arranging coaching courses as and when required, the Region supports the development of Coaches by running seminars, workshops and conferences. Coaches are also encouraged to assist at the training camps and the Overseas Camp.
