Colchester Swimming Club Academy

Our aim at The Colchester Swimming Club Academy is to provide an enhanced environment for the teaching and coaching of young swimmers to develop every swimmer to their full potential. We look to provide an opportunity and the encouragement needed to enable swimmers to develop and explore the possibilities of competitive swimming.

Being part of the Academy will not guarantee a place in the competitive squad but with our focus being on good technique and stroke development we hope that this will give every swimmer the best opportunity to perform well in the Colchester entry trials. We realise competitive swimming may not be for every child, so once they are of a good standard and have reached the appropriate age we will offer them the opportunity to apply for a place in either our water polo section or a place in our Academy Teen Training Squad.
