We are the only club in Bristol to offer four Swim England Level 3 coaches within our team, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to every squad and swimmer.
Our level 3 coaches lead a committed group of volunteer teachers and coaches made up from our Masters squad, parents, and the wider swimming community. Several of our volunteer coaches have achieved their qualifications through the club and we continue to invest in their training within and outside of the club to build experience and, in turn, help our swimmers improve performance.
Director of Swimming
Malcolm saw early on the value of having a well run and well organised Club so that the coaching team could give the best to their swimmers.
She has taught swimming at Filton Sports Centre and Splash Happy Swim School, and was a lead coach at Severnside Tritons Swimming Club for many years, progressing to Deputy Head Coach at Southwold Swimming Club before we were lucky to have her lead our coaching team.
Our club is a SwimMark club. Formerly called Swim21, SwimMark accreditation is Swim England’s quality standard for clubs. It recognises high standards of governance, sustainability and effectiveness. Bristol North Swimming Club prioritises the welfare of all its members and its SwimMark accreditation is a testament to our high standards of safeguarding and compliance with Swim England WavePower.
After progressing through our Learn to Swim programme, or if you join us from a local Leisure Centre or other club (subject to a successful trial) then typically you will move into our Swim Development groups or competitive squads. If you are over the age of 18, then you can join our Masters Squad. Learn more below.
We hold our lessons at Filton Leisure Centre on Sunday afternoons. See below for our full timetable and get in touch for our prices.
As we are a competitive club, it is expected that all squad swimmers compete. This can be very frightening for new, particularly younger swimmers, and so we have many events on the annual calendar to make this transition easier. More on this below.
Predominantly based in Filton, we train at a number of pools in the north of Bristol from Sunday to Friday inclusive, depending on squad. Get in touch to find out our current timetable and prices.
