Adwick operates a number of different sessions, covering all age groups and all abilities. These sessions range from improving swimming up to full competitive training. We also cater for swimmers who want to train but not compete in galas. The information below details these sessions and their cost (which is among the lowest in Doncaster). With around 15 qualified teachers /coaches we have an excellent teacher to swimmer ratio, and pride ourselves on being a friendly and open club. If you are interested in joining us then just complete the application form in the Join Us tab.
A squad – Mondays 19.00 to 21.00, Thursdays 19.30 to 21.00 & Saturdays 15.30 to 17.00. This is the squad for our more advanced swimmers, who are expected to take part in swimming galas (both league and open). Ability ranges from those swimmers who are relatively new to competitive swimming, through to those who swim at Yorkshire (county), North Eastern (regional) and even national level swimmers. The monthly cost is £20.00.
B squad – Thursdays 18.30 to 19.30 & Saturdays 14.00 to 15.30. Once stamina and skill has developed, swimmers then progress to B squad. Again training in competitive swimming skills continues, and depending on age swimmers have the opportunity to take part in some of the many galas Adwick enters (see the gala tab for information on these). The monthly cost is £16.00.
Improving swimming squad – Friday evenings 18.30 to 19.00 and 19.00 to 20.00. Swimmers new to this session take part in 1 x 30 minute lengths session at 18.30. Once stamina improves they move to the 19.00pm time slot, which runs for 1 hour between 19.00 to 20.00. The aim of these sessions is to improve technique and stamina, but also to introduce swimmers to more coaching based activities. More challenging competition skills begin to be introduced. The monthly cost is either £13 (30 minutes) or £14.00 (1 hour).
Teaching & introduction to coaching (information for current members only) – Friday evenings 18.00 to 18.30, with each swimmer taking part in 1 x 30 minute session. This is for children who are learning to swim, who progress through our groups based on ability. We cover all 4 strokes and bring in additional water skills, making sure our lessons are fun. Our teachers have at least a level 1 teaching qualification. The monthly cost is £13.00.
Teaching (information for parents interested in their children learning to swim) – Adwick has signed up to the DCLT scheme. Under this scheme children will complete their swimming lessons with DCLT. Once they reach level 7 they have the opportunity to move to Adwick Swimming Club to improve their strokes initially, and ultimately have the opportunity to join our squad system. If you are interested in joining then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dolphins – Friday evenings 20.00 to 21.00. We understand that some of our older swimmers might not want to compete in galas, so we also run a session for them on a Friday, which allows them do swim fit training. The monthly cost is £14.00.
