Academy

Our aim at Southend on Sea Swimming Club Academy is to provide a safe, fun environment for the teaching and development of young swimmers. Our qualified and experienced team of coaches encourage every child to reach their full potential. Our focus centres on the development of the technical skills required for all four strokes. Children in the Academy have the opportunity to compete in their own Academy gala and to complete ASA badges and awards. All swimmers in the Academy are offered a place in the main Club once they have reached the require standard.
