WSC School of Swimming

In the fantastic Rickmansworth swimming pool (the photo does not do it justice), we focus on building the swimmer's skills and techniques so that they can swim confidently, safely and happily. We follow the British Gas ASA Learn to Swim Pathway taking children from their first splashes in the water through to building confidence in the water.

For younger children we start with the ASA Foundation Framework to develop water confidence. Then we move through the ASA Learn to Swim Framework Stages 1-7 followed by the ASA Aquatic Skills Framework Stages 8-10.

All our swimmers are taught the correct ASA Natational Standard techniques for front crawl, breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly. In the later stages we also teach other skills such as turns and dives. 

Being part of a Club also gives School Of Swimming pupils the opportunity to participate in Club run galas and find out what it is like competing against others in the Club. For those that want to continue swimming once they have completed all their stages, Watford Swimming Club have various squads where swimmers have the opportunity to reach their full potential competing in swimming galas at Club, Local, Regional and even National level.

Watford Swimming Club is a competitive club which may not suit everyone so this is not a path that all swimmers need to follow, there are other options which can be explored when the time comes.
