Thinking about joining?  Buxton Swimming Club cater for all levels of swimmers from the complete beginner to those who swim at county, regional, national and international level.  You don’t have to be a great swimmer to join us, all we ask is that you love swimming and want to be part of a club that wants to have fun.  We do place an emphasis on competitive swimming, but we also cater for those who just want to stay fit and healthy.

Are you a complete beginner or need to complete lessons?  We have a learn to swim programme based on the Swim England National Plan for Teaching Swimming, with an emphasis on competition skills.  Lessons are held on Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons.

If your child has completed all stages they will be placed in one of our squads after assessment by our Senior or Head Coach.  If your child hasn’t swum in a club environment they may well be placed in a squad below the intended squad until they build up sufficient stamina.

If you are interested in joining us and require more information, please use the “contact us” section and one of our committee members or coaches will get back to you.
