Welcome to Deben Swimming Club

Deben Swimming Club is based in Woodbridge and caters for swimmers of all levels; from learning to swim to county, regional and national level. Weekly swimming lessons are provided with progressive teaching leading to squad training and competition. The squads are divided into Development, Competitive and Performance, each providing the necessary training.

Deben consists of two main sectors; The Teaching Section and The Squads. Each component has its own specific teaching/coaching aims. Being an all inclusive club we integrate swimmers with disabilities where the environment and type of disability allows us to.

The Teaching Section is for swimmers aged five and above. There are seven groups, which each swimmer will progress through as levels and awards are achieved. The Club follows the ASA National Teaching Plan.
