The University of Liverpool Swimming Team is open to a wide range of abilities from national swimmers to those who have competed at a school or local level. Last year saw us finish in one of our strongest ever positions in the Team BUCS 2nd division, as well as a strong showing at the BUCS long course and short course championships. We engage in regular competitions throughout the year and provide a fun and competitive environment for all swimmers.
We offer regular training sessions, all of which take place in the University Sports Centre pool. The main sessions are on Tuesday and Thursday 7:00pm - 8:30pm. We also organise extra training sessions most other days. All types of training are covered including distance, sprint, technique and land training.
Training is open to both those who want to swim competitively and to those who want to swim more casually to stay fit, have fun and meet new people.
We send teams to all 3 BUCS national championships (short course, long course and team championships). There are also a number of other opportunities for our members to compete, inluding at Varsity, the Christie Championship, Steel Cup and a number of other charity galas, open meets and invitationals.
In addition to attending the AU night held once a month, we also hold a welcome party, so all new members to can get to meet each other and the current members. Regular socials are organised throughout the year, such as our annual Christmas meal, so don't hesitate to get involved! Our vibrant social calender is central to our friendly and team-orientated atmosphere.
If you would like to come down to a training session to try it out, contact us and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you at the pool!
