About Berkhamsted Swimming Club


Berkhamsted Swimming Club (BSC) was created by the merger of Berkhamsted Sports Centre Swimming Club (BSCSC) and Berkhamsted Barracudas in 2012. The Club has a long history of developing successful swimmers at local, county, regional and national levels. This is achieved by developing the swimmer from an all-round perspective, providing them with not only focus, direction, commitment and support, but also providing them with life skills. The Head Coach leads an enthusiastic team who create a challenging, stimulating and supportive development environment where swimmers from all backgrounds can fulfil their aspirations to swim competitively and achieve their full potential. The size of the Club ensures that each member receives individual attention and is directed in a training programme suited to their needs and abilities. The Coaching Team keeps up to date with the very latest techniques in swimming training and athlete development. BSC is best described as a family Club, with swimmers aged 8 years up to Masters level, and is proud of its caring and friendly atmosphere. Parents are encouraged to become involved in Club activities, by supporting the Coaching Team in a variety of roles.
