Halifax Swimming Club aims to encourage and promote the teaching and coaching of competitive aquatic sports for children throughout West Yorkshire.
We are open 48 weeks of the year and only close over the Christmas period, two weeks in August & when the pool is closed.
We have Swim 21 Accreditation at teaching and skill development levels.
All the swimming coaches are volunteers with professional qualifications. The Head Coach is Gareth Griffiths and he is assisted by Julie Beaumont.
We encourage our athletes to take part in competitions at club, local, county, regional and even national level.
We have successful Water Polo teams. Diving and Synchronised swimming are run by Calderdale Leisure Servcies, and compete under the Clubs’ name and constitution.
Parents are encouraged to help with all Club Activities.
The club is run by volunteers and more help is always required.
One of the main jobs that all parents can help with is to be a Standback Observer. The children will not get into the water unless the chairs are occupied, thus losing valuable training time, which you are paying for. The safety of the children is paramount. Please help us in this matter. You may save a life. See Elaine at poolside to get the required training to do this job.
If you feel like helping out there are always jobs available for you to do especially on Gala nights where more help is always welcomed.
