Swimming Club

Programme Overview

Our swimming programme caters for a wide range of swimmers, who are enthusiastic about swimming without the intensity of an elite performance club.

Wey Valley Swimming Club swim programme

We run lessons on Sunday afternoons at Godalming Leisure Centre; these follow the curriculum set out in Swim England’s National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS).

We have three competitive swimming squads whose members train 2-6 hours a week:

  • Pre Comp is a halfway house between Sunday swimming lessons and competitive squad training.
  • The Junior Squad is for younger competitive swimmers; they are typically aged 10-13 and train three times a week.
  • Senior Squad is for older swimmers (12 plus); they train 3-4 times a week.

We have a group for swimmers aged 11+ who want to swim for fitness rather than train for competition. They train on Sunday afternoon, with further options in the week.

There is also an Adult section, including some older teenagers who have moved across from other squads; most swim for fitness, although a few compete in Masters events.

Our programme runs for 45 weeks a year, organised into three terms roughly in line with the school calendar. We have a long summer break in late July and August, and a fortnight off over Christmas; we swim through the Easter holidays (not Easter week-end) and through half-terms.
