HARPENDEN SWIMMING CLUB IS A FRIENDLY BUT COMPETITIVE CLUB BASED IN HERTFORDSHIRE
We welcome swimmers of abilities ranging from stroke improvement to nationals and our coaching team run sessions five days a week.
Harpenden is a small but effective club where every member counts. We aim to develop each individual swimmer to their optimum, to equip them with all the skills to achieve this, and in doing so to build up a strong competitive team with strength in depth.
We place a large emphasis on technique and executing skills quickly over short distances with the younger swimmers, progressing through the distances as skills are solidified and swimmers move through the squads. It is important to us that swimmers enjoy both swimming and other sports and so we work hard in the pool time that we do have and then have time off so our members can do other things.
The club aims to get every swimmer into competition at an appropriate standard. The club competes in the Hertfordshire Swimming Leagues and the National Arena League, Swim England Hertfordshire County Championships, East Region Regional Championships and send swimmers to both Swim England and British Summer Nationals. We also partake in numerous open meets throughout the year and hold internal galas.
Alongside the coaches, we have a dedicated team of volunteers on the committee who enable the club to run smoothly, and numerous officials who help at events ranging from our internal galas to the regional championships.
