At South West Swim we put Swimmers first

As swimmers ourselves we care deeply about your swimming, we’ve done the swims, competed in the events and overcome the nerves and fears of the big challenges.  So we can really appreciate and relate to the goals, ambitions and targets you set yourself and realise that swimming is not only a physical challenge and activity, but can also be a conquest for greatness in every individual.  

This is the driving force behind what we do and how we coach and develop our swimmers.  We tailor sessions to individual needs and targets, swimming can be a tough game and there is no magic pill apart from great coaching and hard work, even if the road is long and winding we will get you to your destination.
