Bath Dolphin Swimming Club no longer offers a learn-to-swim program so for non-swimmers, or those who can swim less than a few hundred meters, we recommend parents seek out our recommended swim schools in and ariound Bath: Splashers, Barracuda & the Sports Centre itself.

JOIN THE CLUB

Bath Dolphin Swimming Club is committed to the ASA and British Swimming equality vision, that swimmers should have the opportunity to reach their potential.

For new swimmers joining the club it is important that they are placed in a squad which matches their ability. For this reason, all aspiring club members are given a brief assessment before joining the club.

Regular assessments are held at Bath Sports & Leisure Centre and will be arranged on demand when there is a number of swimmers ready to join. To arrange an assessment please complete the form here.

WHAT WE OFFER FOR SQUAD SWIMMERS

Entry to the squad is via a trial with swimmers usually joining around the age of nine once their learen-to-swim journey is complete. Squad swimmers are trained by or under the supervision of ASA qualified coaches. The swimmers follow a 12-month targeted cycle, directed by the Head Coach, Tegan Carpenter-George. The club offers both Junior and Senior Squad options based on age and capability. Session days and times are dependent upon which squad the swimmer is a member of.

Members of the squad are expected to compete in the galas for which they qualify or are selected. This could include the Club Championships, the County Championship, National Swimming League and Junior Leagues as well as competing in open meets.

WHAT WE OFFER FOR MASTERS SWIMMERS

The club also has a growing number of masters swimmers who train under an ASA qualified coach. Some masters participate for fitness and fun, others train and take part in competitions around the UK.
