Welcome to Weston-super-Mare Swimming Club. The coaching program at WsM SC provides comprehensive resources for young swimmers who aspire to further their potential at Local, Regional, National and International levels.

Led by Head Coach Mark Rawle and a team of highly motivated assistant coaches and support staff. We are proud to have access to some of the best facilities in the local area for swimming and land conditioning. Endeavouring to address the needs of our young athletes as they progress through all developmental stages of our Age Group and Youth Programs.

Our age group program has its own dedicated coaching team, led by our head of age group swimming coach, Laura Nesbitt. We provide comprehensive coaching, land conditioning and competition structure, designed to give our age group swimmers every opportunity to reach their full potential.

Our program strives to provide advanced technique and racing skills from a sound grounding in the fundamentals of both. We do this in an environment where teaching, coaching and learning are both stimulating and enjoyable.

Squads and Training

Swimmers are assessed by the coaching staff when they attend Talent I.D sessions at WsM SC and based on their age and ability they are assigned to the appropriate training squad.
During their membership of WsM SC swimmer?s progress will be assessed by the coaches and they will be moved into different squads in accordance with their individual age and ability.

As a member of WsM SC swimmers are expected to attend all training sessions as advised by the coaching staff.

All swimmers are expected to compete at appropriate competitions regularly throughout their time within the club. Failure to do so may prevent swimmers reaching their full potential, slow progression through the squad hierarchy and could jeopardies a swimmer?s place in our competitive squad structure.


All swimmers within our program will be:

  • Encouraged to fulfil their potential as an athlete and to develop their personal and life skills.

  • Taught to appreciate the philosophy which embraces the virtues and characteristics of all great athletes.

  • Encouraged to see that HARD work and honest endeavor can achieve success.
