Kingston Royals Swimming Club
A welcoming, vibrant, family-oriented and community based swimming club in South-West London. We are a SwimMark accredited club that currently operate on three stages of the ASA development pathway: Learn to Swim, Competitive Swimming, and Active for Life – covering five Aquatic Disciplines: Competitive Swimming, Para-Swimming, Water Polo, Open Water and Masters Swimming. We are a successful club producing qualifiers, finalists and medallists at County, Regional and National level.
“Kingston Royals Swimming Club aims to provide an environment in which each club member can reach his or her competitive swimming potential”.
While the Club aims to produce swimmers who can compete at the top of our sport, we believe that our GREATEST achievement is the benefit that we provide to the whole community.
We strive to be as inclusive as possible; a club providing opportunities in aquatic sports for the people of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and the surrounding area.
WHAT WE DO:
We provide an environment for swimming for the residents of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames and the surrounding area. We are committed to developing all our swimmers in accordance with Swim England’s guidelines for athlete development and will look to do so by providing a fun and welcoming environment in which all swimmers can learn and develop. We seek to provide a place to swim for as wide a spectrum of the community as possible through squads that are inter-linked and focus on the full development of each swimmer while seeking to provide the best environment we can for those who wish to achieve success at the top of the sport.
We want to inspire and enable our members to reach their full potential in the sport of swimming. We strive to improve ourselves to be the best we can be by providing support to our teachers, coaches and volunteers through development, training and mentoring courses, clinics and seminars and through links with Swim England, Surrey County ASA, London Region ASA and many other partners.
We work closely with the local council, leisure centre management and other aquatic clubs within the borough to ensure that aquatic sports are accessible to all.
Through the involvement of our coaches, teachers, volunteers and members we hope to create a strong TEAM ethos throughout the Club which will help us achieve our mission. In so doing we hope that all our members will make swimming an activity for life.
