DEVIZES AMATEUR SWIMMING CLUB AT A GLANCE
Devizes Amateur Swimming Club meet regularly throughout the year at Devizes Leisure Centre.
We have a thriving teaching section where young people can learn to swim to ASA standard.
Our aim is to foster an environment where children & young adults can enjoy learning a new sport and life skill, swim competitively when ready and most importantly we want our club members to gain a life-long love of swimming
Making A Difference
If you want to learn to swim, Devizes Swimming Club can help you: we cater for all ages from five years old to adults. All of our coaches are trained how to teach swimming to an approved national standard and we follow the ASA teaching guidelines for swimming
We swim on Tuesday evening starting at 6:00pm with a typical session for a learner lasting about 30 minutes.
The swimming squad are usually those members aged 10 and over who have reached a satisfactory standard in one or more strokes and who wish to swim and train competitively. There is no upper age limit - our Open team starts at about 16 years and includes adults.
The squad enter both the Wiltshire Moonraker Summer League (April to September) and Winter League (December to March) and there are 4 galas in each league.
RETURN TO SWIMMING
We do not have a return date from Devizes Leisure Centre or Dauntsey’s School but we are continuing with our preparations to ensure we are ready when the time comes.
DASC HEALTH SURVEY
All Club memebers must complete the DASC Health Survey - THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL
Completed questionnaires are required by 14th August 2020 and we cannot allow your child to swim without it. Please complete a questionnaire for each child swimming with us and return by email to the Treasurer.
