Joining our Club


Swimmers from Lessons not at Wycombe Sports Centre

We take children into the club's Academy and Stroke Improver Classes, after they have reached level 7/8 (NPTS) following their Learn to Swim Program. In our Stroke Improver section at the club we concentrate on the three main strokes of Front crawl, Breaststroke and Backstroke, with the emphasis on stroke work. Following the Stroke Improvers squads, swimmers progress into our Academy or Development program.

Aquazone lesson program Swimmers

Wycombe District Swimming Club Academy starts at the Bronze level. The Bronze Academy is an integrated program in conjunction with the Aquazone Lesson Program at Wycombe Leisure Centre. The purpose of the Bronze Academy is to encourage swimmers to continue in their learn-to-swim program, whilst getting a taste of club swimming and benefiting from additional time in the water in a club environment.
The academy is selective and swimmers must be talented, committed and the right age. Selection is made by Wycombe Swimming Club Coaching Staff and we are looking for talented 7 to 9 year olds to join the academy.
