Masters swimming at Seagulls Swimming Club is for adults aged over 18 years (generally) and encompasses the whole range of ability from casual fitness swimming to highly organised competitive swimming. Therefore, to be a Masters swimmer you don’t have to be a past champion or even plan to be a future one.
More & more people are looking for ways to keep fit and to socialise as we become more health conscious, and the Masters swimming scene can tick all the boxes.
Swimming within the Seagulls Swimming Club Masters section is a friendly affair. Masters membership covers a wide range of abilities from the casual swimmer to the more competitive swimmer of all ages. Most of our Masters members have joined because they either swum in the past, or were swimming at local public sessions. If you are interested in swimming; to improve your general fitness, stamina or technique, as a means of relaxation, or just to swim in a more motivational session or social group, then our club is probably what you are looking for.
Our Coach provides a tailored training program and oversees the swimming in each lane and the lanes are generally organised by ability, so even if you haven’t swum for years, there will be a level to suit you.
For those who are interested in competing, Seagulls Swimming Club attends competitions in the local area and has individuals who compete further afield. Masters competitions are usually relaxed, fun and friendly affairs which rarely have a qualifying standard. Heats usually take place based on ability and not age, therefore, no matter what standard you have reached, you should only be racing against people of a similar ability. However, there is no requirement for swimmers to compete at all.
All squad fees can be found on our Membership Fees page.
