Welcome to Wincanton Swimming Club
Just a small and subtle reminder that clicking the links on our website (like the one above!) and using them to buy your kit from these guys means a bit of extra funding for the club...
The centre boasts a 25 metre swimming pool situated within a modern, light and airy pool hall. As a club we pride ourselves on our warm and welcoming atmosphere while still maintaining a healthy competitive attitude.
Junior training ranges from swimming lengths, working on fitness, stroke technique and correction, to development squad preparation and competition swimming. All sessions are fully supervised by RLSS qualified lifeguards.
Masters members train once or twice a week for gala and National Competition entry. The Saturday social swim is a more relaxed session although a lane is always available for more serious training!
The club is entirely run and coached by unpaid volunteers.
Current SessionsJuniors: 6.00 - 7.00pm and 7.00 - 8.00pm on Thursdays, and 5.00 - 6.00pm on Sundays
We have several groups swimming lengths working on stroke technique and correction.
The 6pm to 7pm groups consist of those swimmers working to improve technique and fitness, and two of the lanes swim lengths for an hour in preparation for the development squad.
The 7pm -8pm group consists of development swimmers training to prepare for galas.
There is now one lane available for masters in the 6.00 - 7.00pm session.
Masters: 8.00 - 9.00pm on Thursdays, 6.00 - 7.00pm (one lane only) on Sundays
Saturday Social Swim: 1 lane is reserved for the development squad and distance swimmers.
The rest of the pool is available for social swimmers and families.
All swimmers are encouraged to wear swim hats and boys should wear trunks rather than shorts.
Teachers/Coaches: Alan Morris, Adele Parham, Gavin Munnery, Jube Walker, Heidi Pullyblank, Debs Gompertz, George Graham, Louisa Chant and Karen Gill.
