Verulam Swimming Club provides swimming opportunities for all, at a level that is both appropriate and gradually progressive in standard. We place strong emphasis on teaching and developing swimming skills, and provide competition to swimmers’ competitive (or not) desires. We offer a range of challenges from which swimmers can choose, such as: internal time trials, our “Verulam Club Champs” competitions (which are events for only our squad), Hertfordshire Swimming’s Peanuts and Major League events, the Arena Swimming League’s events, many open meets (Novice, Sprint and Long Distance) and County and Regional Championships (for those who qualify).
Swimmers interested in joining can come along for a trial with a coach. Their stamina, stroke and diving abilities will be assessed, and providing space is available, s/he will be offered membership in one of three groups (Juniors, Intermediates, or Seniors). As swimmers progress and improve they move through the groups. We also have competitive squads for each of the three groups with their own dedicated training sessions.
At Verulam, we have a strong coaching team led by Zofia Kozien. We also promote our own swimmers and parents to become involved in teaching, officiating, and coaching, on a voluntary basis and through professional ASA courses. Find out more about the team in Who’s who.
Sessions last between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours and up to 5 nights a week.
