About us

Welcome to the City of Leicester Swimming Club

City of Leicester Swimming Club is the Leicestershire Performance Club and is based at Braunstone Leisure Centre. The club provides over 120 places for swimmers ranging from Regional to Senior Internationals.

The Club was founded in December 1977 with the amalgamation of several existing satellite clubs. Whilst it has undergone many changes in that time the objectives remain the same, to provide professional coaching and training opportunities for swimmers within Leicestershire and it is currently the chosen Talent Pathway for Leicestershire ASA.

From its conception the club has remained at the forefront of Regional and National swimming and has had swimmers compete internationally representing both the County and Country.

This club is commited to providing the highest level of coaching and continues to identify talent potential and achieve podium success today. 

Over the club's forty year history there have been many highlights including representation at junior and senior International level, British National Champions and British record holders.

From initial talent identification each individual swimmer has access to both pool and land based training that allows for full long term athlete development.
