[Club Info] - [About Us]
Bramcote Swimming Club was founded in 1965, when our 'home' pool at Bramcote Leisure Centre was built. The club has since enjoyed continuous activity and a strong membership, helping thousands of swimmers to develop their interest in the sport.
Our mission is to offer children in Bramcote and surrounding areas the best opportunity to develop and achieve their maximum potential in the sport of swimming.
We aim to achieve this by providing a secure, caring and orderly environment where each child is encouraged to work together during training and to compete as a team as well as an individual.
We hold annual club championships, and encourage all members to compete in a range of competitions from local galas through to national championships, participating in both team and individual events. We work closely with Broxtowe Council and local schools to grow our membership and develop the sport long term within the borough. The club feeds many of its more gifted swimmers through to Nottingham Nova Centurion, effectively the county squad, where development to the highest level (international) training is available.
Bramcote Swimming Club takes non-swimmers from 4 to 7 and improvers from 8 years of age. They are taught the basic techniques of all four swimming strokes of breaststroke; freestyle; backstroke and butterfly and taken to a level of competency where they will be transferred to the splash pool in the main pool area. At this stage they will be considered for a place in one of our 3 excellent swimming squads.
The swimming squads represent the Club in competitive galas around the region. Bramcote hosts some of the galas, but we also travel to places like Hucknall, Mansfield, Hinckley, Braunstone, and Carlton to name just a few!
There are nine levels in our learn to Swim programme where your child will be one of a small group of children all of a similar level of competence. When your child comes to the club their ability will be assessed to make sure they join at the right level. New Swimmers are assessed by the coaching staff and are placed into groups based upon their age and capabilities.
Main Pool swimmers are put into one of our three swim squads Junior, Intermediate or Senior based on their age and capabilities.
