Swim Conwy is a County Performance Club based in Llandudno Swimming Centre and led by Head Coach Chris Davies.
The goal of Swim Conwy is to “support the whole journey”. Swim Conwy aims to have active involvement in the development of swimmers all the way from the Authorities Learn to Swim Programme until they reach the standard required for Performance Squad. The next stage, on attaining the right age is to then assist their transition into high performance or university squads.
At the start of 2016 Swim Conwy completely reviewed its structure which led to the appointment of a new head coach and it now looks forward to a bright future by aiming to produce swimmers that will challenge for honours at National and British level.
Swim Conwy currently has 2 full time swimming programs which aim to produce swimmers capable of being competitive at a national level whilst aspiring how far they could take their swimming if they reach a high performance set up at university age.
To support Swim Conwy the County currently has 3 development swimming clubs being Abergele, Colwyn Bay and Llandudno who aim to produce swimmers with the right skills required to feed the two performance squads. The performance pathway commences with a squad aimed at ages 10-13 who train 6 sessions per week. This squad (known as the potential squad) is a predominantly a skill based squad with the emphasis on developing the necessary skills required to access the full time performance squad.
The Swim Conwy performance squad is aimed at swimmers aged 13+ who not only have the potential to compete at national level but aspire to reach their full potential which we very much hope will see them competing at even higher standard. This squad has access to 8 pool sessions a week and in addition to these hours the programme is supported by a series of land conditioning sessions.
