Bletchley and District Swim Club welcomes swimmers who would like to train and/or compete at swimming galas. We acknowledge that there are aspects of competitive swimming that might not appeal to all swimmers and we are quite happy for those swimmers to attend selected training sessions to continue improving their swimming ability and overall fitness.
The Coaches at Bletchley and District Swim Club provide a training programme that will encourage the swimmer to achieve their full potential, with emphasis on the refinement of technique in all four strokes, the development of competitive skills including starts and turns as well as the development of both basic aerobic swimming elements of endurance and speed swimming are integrated within the programme. Personal goals are used and encouraged and promote improvement of technique, fitness, endurance and times. Bletchley & District Swim Club also takes part in various open meets ranging from Novice through to County level swimming. All of our swimmers are encouraged to enter Open Meets under the guidance of our coaching staff to ensure they compete against swimmers of similar ability. All Competitive swimmers should keep their personal best times (PB’s) up to date and this can be achieved through print outs from the club data base.
Our competitive squads are a natural progression on from the NATIONAL PLAN FOR TEACHING SWIMMING (NPTS) Level 7 – Pre-competition Development and focuses on the consolidation of effective stroke technique, racing skills and a suitable range of drills and practices.
