Make a splash in the Swimming Academy!

Swimmer in swimming pool

New for 2022, our Swimming Academy is open to all competitive and non-competitive swimmers. 

Our Swimming Academy is a great opportunity for keen swimmers and offers students the chance to compete a minimum of twice a year as well as attend any galas the Academy are involved in.

Held at Neptune Swimming Pool, training is run by coaches at Middlesbrough Amateur Swimming Club (MASC) who have trained swimmers such as Olympian Jack Hatfield and Commonwealth Gold Medallist 2018 Aimee Willmott.

Coach Myles Carter will help create programmes set to each swimmers personal requirements and includes fitness testing and strength and conditioning sessions.
