Chelsea and Westminster Swimming Club (CWSC) is a complete swimming program serving the Central London community through our competitive squads, non-competitive squads, and learn to swim programs based in Kensington and Westminster. Our mission is to inspire young athletes to become champions in life through excellence in swimming. CWSC takes pride in teaching its swimmers the skills and techniques needed to not only maximize their potential in the pool, but most importantly in all other areas of their lives. We attempt to create an environment that is conductive to producing dedicated and passionate young athletes while continually stressing essential life skills through the sport of swimming.
The Club has achieved the Swim21 accreditation from the British Amateur Swimming Association along with Sport England's Club Mark.
The Club is shaped by two main characteristics: COMPETITION and VOLUNTEERING. The primary goal of the Club is to teach and coach members to compete in swimming galas at club, county and national competitive level on a not-for profit basis. The Club is managed by an Executive (integrating a Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary and the Treasurer) and a Committee (comprising the Executive plus the Welfare Officer and at least two and up to four other elected members). Chelsea & Westminster Swimming Club is run by a group of volunteers.
