We are a friendly Swim 21 accredited swimming club for children and teenagers based in the Sutton, Caterham, Epsom, 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.

Peter will therefore take over the senior squad sessions on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. Tuesday nights at Caterham will be taken either by Peter or Denise. In addition Laurence Stretton will be adding to his responsibilities by taking over the Saturday senior squad. He will also take a more active role in coaching at galas alongside Denise and Peter. Thursday’s Warlingham session gets back underway this Wednesday so the summer senior squad will no longer swim on Wednesdays at Whitgift. Also the Saturday morning senior squad session at Epsom will be suspended until further notice.
The coaching strategy at the club remains unchanged in that we strive for each swimmer to achieve their full potential. The philosophy of the club remains as that of an inclusive club which is open and available to all while preparing more capable swimmers to excel in competitive swimming.
