Mission Statement

Wantage White Horses Swimming Club - Mission Statement

We want local swimmers to enjoy the fun of competitive swimming and to be encouraged to take it to the level to which they aspire irrespective of their race, age, culture, ability, ethnicity or nationality, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, marital status, religious affiliation, and socioeconomic status.

We will provide a supportive and motivated coaching environment that helps swimmers to identify and then achieve their own aspirations: our key focus is the success of our swimmers in achieving those aspirations.

Guiding principles

We have some formal rules  but we also think it important to have some guiding principles which guide us in the way the club is run. These are:

  • WWHSC is a competitive swimming club: swimmers are our priority.

  • We encourage all levels of swimmers to commit to train and compete regularly and improve their swimming and fitness.

  • We communicate clearly and regularly with members and we share our ideas about the future of the club.

  • Everyone is treated fairly.

  • We have fun.

  • We are an inclusive, friendly and sociable club.

  • We spread the load of running the club between all Club members so that no one person is over-worked.

  • We give a high level of commitment and we expect the same from all swimmers and their families.
