** YATE SWIMMING POOL IS DUE TO OPEN FOR TRAINING 29th OCTOBER - NEW GROUPS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON **CURRENT POOL PLAN ON THE SIDEBAR **

Swim Development Groups

This session takes place on Sundays and is aimed at children who can swim between 50 metres and 800 metres and who are confident in the main pool. Swim Development members can enter the Club Championships and Founders Galas, if they meet the age and swimming distance criteria. Sessions are arranged over 12 - 14 week terms. Fees are paid a term at a time.

Once swimmers reach the age of 9 years old and are not of a standard to join the competition groups they may not have their swim development place renewed and be required to transfer to Leisure Centre lessons

Swim Development swimmers must purchase a set of training fins (NOT flippers) so that they can start to learn correct stroke technique and the drills required to develop their stamina and technique.

There are four separate Groups:
