We are a friendly Swim 21 accredited swimming club for children and teenagers based in the Sutton, Caterham, Croydon and Warlingham areas. The club and its coaches are passionate about providing the community with a quality teaching and coaching experience to allow all abilities the opportunity to develop and improve their skills. We also offer adult swimming lessons.
Our teaching school gives the opportunity for beginners and those that want to improve their skills to learn at an accelerated rate with low swimmer to teacher ratios, and follows the ASA National Swim Plan.
The coaching squads allow for all abilities, from swimmers who want to keep fit to those that enter the county and regional championships. The squads provide a structured approach to allow swimmers to reach their full potential with training geared to the required level as well as competitions at club, inter-club, open and county championship galas.
The club is affiliated to the ASA, London ASA, Croydon Swimming Association and Sutton Swimming Association. The ASA Swim 21 accreditation process is central to the running and future development of the club allowing the committee to ensure it delivers a quality and dedicated experience for all swimmers.
We have had several galas over the last few weeks.
21st May Minor league round 1 Fareham
11th June Rother Junior Trophy RJT Godalming
18th June Rother League round 2 Godalming
18th June The Maritime Trophy B Gala Sevenoaks
Laurence and Denise attended the Minor league round 1 at Fareham. A coach was laid on for the swimmers, helpers and some parents. The feed back was all positive from both children and adults. The swimmers worked hard and did their best, all one can ask for.
I took he RJT at Godalming. The attitude from the swimmers was excellent, they were all so keen to swim and be involved.
Clifford took the Rother League round 2 at Godalming. When I asked him about the evening he was over the moon about how positive the swimmers were. Mentioning them all on how well they performed their whole attitude and outlook.
I did the Maritime B Gala at Sevenoaks. Again it was refreshing to hear the swimmers wanting to know when their next race is and the positive attitude they were taking.
In all the above events we came in exactly where we knew we would, last. But the experience theses swimmers are gaining and will continue to gain over the next couple of years is priceless. We are swimming children up between one and three years above their age groups so you can imagine how well they will be prepared when they swim in their own age groups. SASC have plenty of youngsters coming through the ranks some of whom have swam in galas for the first time in the above events. No moaning or whining about which event just so happy to be part of their swimming club. Well done to all the swimmers in the above events I am a very happy Head Coach.
I would also like to thank all the parents who have volunteered to help and those that have come along to support the swimmers.
We regularly recognise club members that have been role models for the Club through the Jack Petchy awards. This month we will be recognising 3 for the list below. Please could you ask your child to vote at their next
