Academy

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 teachers and coaches encourage every child to reach their full potential, Our focus centres on the development of the technical skills required for all four swimming strokes ie Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Frontcrawl. Children in the Academy are encouraged to compete in home galas where they have developed the relevant skills and to complete Swim England badges and awards. All swimmers in the Academy are offered a place in the main Club once they have reached the required standard.
