Developing Swimmers From Entry To Elite Level

Bobcats aims to continue to develop and grow into a sustainable and thriving all-inclusive community swimming club. Through maintaining our ethos of being swimmer centred, coach driven and parent supported we aim to increase participation and opportunity within swimming, whilst supporting the development and well-being of all our swimmers both in and out of the pool.


Starting out on your swimming journey? We take children of all abilities starting in our Pre-Competitive Swim Academy from the age of 4 years.

Throughout the week our competitively priced swimming lessons and training sessions are held at Padiham Leisure Centre, Padiham and St Peter’s Leisure Centre, Burnley.  


The Club offers a smooth transition into the performance development squad for talented swimmers with competitive swimming aspirations. Lead by our head coach Ian Spencer, Bobcat swimmers have succeeded at all levels of competition from County, Regional, National and onto British standard and the Club is consistently represented in the top 30 British Swimmer rankings across a variety of age groups.
