Altrincham Swimming Club has over 160 active swimmers ranging from 7-21 years old. All training sessions are coached by qualified instructors and we are proud to be accredited with the Swim England
The Club participates in a range of internal and external galas throughout the year. The Club is an integral part of Trafford swimming pathway that aims to support swimming at all levels from developing strokes to elite club competitors.
The Club has a waiting list and usually offers entry assessments three times a year, the next assessment is scheduled for late March however this assessment is full. If you would like to reserve a place on the following assessment (early summertime) it is advisable to register early.
The average age for new members is 7-10 years old and they will have reasonable technique in freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke, be developing butterfly skills, and a good level of fitness. Level 6-7 of Swim Well, taught by Trafford Leisure, or similar learn to swim scheme, is usually sufficient.
Older swimmers (11 – 14) should be of a County standard, although this is not essential dependant upon age, current skills, and level of commitment.
Swimmers aged 15 and above must be at County standard and already training in a competitve environment – usually training at another Club but moving into the Trafford area – their potential to achieve Regional standard will be fundamental to them being offered a place within the Club.
