Evesham Swimming Club is an inclusive club with competition playing a big part of our activities.
We are achieving increasing success at getting our swimmers to Worcestershire County Championships as well as competing as a Club team against other clubs in the region.
We target a number of galas each year that our coaches feel will match the abilities of our swimmers. As a club we run an internal Summer & Winter Championships which give our swimmers experience of competition.
We aim to introduce swimmers to competing in races as soon as possible. This is done internally to raise swimmer confidence and develop the understanding of the skills required. Once they reach 9 years (the ASA age for competing outside club) they should be competent to compete for ESC.
Key Competitions throughout the calendar year:
Jan/Feb – County Championships
Jan to May – PGL (Final in June)
