WHO ARE WE?
We are a friendly, student run, swimming team. We cater for all swimming abilities and as long as you can swim, you can join. We DO NOT run "swimming lessons".
We train Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 7-8pm, Wednesday, 2:30-4pm, Saturday 4-5pm at EnergyBase.
Competitive swimmers are able to access further training near BUCS events.
The membership fee is £60 for UoL students and £75 for Non UoL students for the year with a cost for the pool use, which is additional £60 for full students or £75 for associate students.
We train in Central London at Student Central in the Bloombury Campus, so easily accessible by tube/walking for the majority of students in London.
- Opportunity to compete in 3 friendly galas a year for all members (and if they are out of London we will subsidise the accomodation cost).
- Swimmers selected to represent the University of London at BUCS in Sheffield are given free accomodation and 50% off their train ticket back, making the membership even better value for money.
- On the run up to BUCS, we train at the Olympic Pool, for no additional cost to members.
- 5.5 hours of coaching a week for competitive swimmers, 4 for non-competitive.
- Summer vacation with the team (self funded).
- Two highly qualified coaches pushing to you make your personal best times and/or improve technique.
