Our club was founded in 1985 by Don Porter, who was our head coach for 20 years. Since foundation we have become one of the leading teams in the region, competing against many other teams from all over the county and beyond. We train at the Wombourne Leisure Centre, where we have a 25metre pool. We work hard to ensure we are fast, fit and competitive, and also making sure that our swimmers of all ages are enjoying their swimming and reaching their potential. The club, and our swimmers, are affiliated to the ASA, which means we can enter open galas across the country and progress to county and national championships

The club offers a swim school on a Monday evening for children from the age of 7yrs where they are taught all the basics of competitive swimming such as stroke technique, diving and competitive turns. There are also additional sessions at Smestow School for our Pre-squad members on Wednesday evenings 7.45-8.45pm, and Thursdays’s 7.15-8.15pm.
