About Us

Putteridge Swimming Clubs overall aim is to train your child to achieve whatever they wish to achieve be it a pb, county or regional time and to help them be who they want to be. There is no better feeling than a swimmer coming up to you post-race with a big smile on their faces ‘ I got a pb!!!’ or your child winning a medal.

Of course there are ups and downs and believe me I have been there, but I haven’t regretted anything as a parent or a coach.

As a person I have learnt so much and it’s helped me in many aspects of my life and for all of my children.  Their life in competitive swimming has been a sound basis in their lives and has seen them grow up as independent, strong and hard- working young adults.

Swimming to whatever level has given them fitness, body awareness, discipline, motivation and a sense of routine.  It has kept my children, who have grown up with many distractions, on the straight and narrow, and for that I am eternally grateful for the world of competitive swimming and I hope you find some of the same for your own children within this opportunity.
