Remember - our swimming pool will be closed on Wednesday 28 August for lane marking repainting as we continue to make improvements to the Sports Village. This also means there will be no swimming element on Wednesdays Kids Village Day Camp. The pool will be back open at the usual time of 06:30 on Thursday 29 August.
The Swim Team is strongly linked with Hatfield Swim Club, a very successful and competitive club in both the East region and nationally. The Club work closely with the ASA East Region to give our Swimmers many opportunities including Coaching Opportunities and Qualifications.
The team is mainly aimed at competitive swimmers who are looking to train and compete alongside Hatfield Swim Club and for the university at major competitions. As a team we also go one step further, helping other students with their research projects, for example in areas of Sports Science and Nutrition.
The University Team do not currently compete but swimmers linking with Hatfield compete regularly under Hatfield Swimming Club. It is our aim in the next year to take a team to BUCS competitions.
There are two weeks of trials and taster sessions which begin in the week following Freshers' Week. These sessions are for new and existing members to train without cost or commitment.
You must pre-register to attend at either the Athletic Union Sports Fair or the SU Fresher’s Fair where you will be given further information.
All members must have signed up to the Club at the end of the two week trial.
The team is coached by a highly experienced and qualified coach.
