Dorking Swimming Club

Mission Statement

Our goal as a friendly family club is to provide the opportunity for each individual to realise their full potential regardless of their ability. We strive to teach them values and skills that will not only ensure their success as athletes but will carry over into their adult lives and also help them to succeed outside the swimming pool. These include the benefits of goal setting, a good work ethic, teamwork, sportsmanship, self-esteem, self discipline and the value of making sacrifices in the interest of long term success.

Aims of the Club

At Dorking SC we aim to cater for all levels of swimmers. All training programmes are carried out under the direction of our coaching team headed by Sue Yeomans. Supporting them is a team of ASA qualified teachers and volunteer coaches. From novice swimmer to accomplished athlete, the aim is to improve technique, speed and stamina as well as work hard and have some fun. Every swimmer is given the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. At the same time a high priority is given to both aspects of comradeship and enjoyment. All swimmers who train with the Club have the opportunity and are encouraged to compete in varying levels of competition.
