Welcome to the City of Leicester Swimming Club

City of Leicester Swimming Club is the chosen performance pathway for Leicestershire, providing some 120 places for swimmers ranging from the age of nine through to their late teens. It is a 'stepping stone' in  Swim England's talent pathway programme between base clubs and senior competition.

The Club was formed in 1978, with the amalgamation of several existing satellite clubs. Whilst it has undergone many changes over the years, the objectives remain the same: to provide professional coaching and training opportunities to nuture the talent of swimmers in Leicestershire. 

City of Leicester has remained at the forefront of regional and national swimming and has had athletes representing  the c ounty, region  and country. There have been many highlights including representation at junior and senior International level, British National Champions and British record holders.

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

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