Why pick Chesterfield Swimming Club?
"A small club with a big vision. We aspire to be the best programme in the world, providing the best coaching, opportunities and environment for ALL."
Chesterfield Swimming Club offers a comprehensive swimming programme no matter what your age, ability and goals. We are proud to be inclusive to everyone and of our ability to provide a fantastic 'Performance Pathway', the 'Swim Chesterfield Academy' and 'Club Swimming' programme.
Our comprehensive Performance Pathway offers all the necessary opportunities for swimmers to reach their full potential. Our coaches are dedicated to the development of our swimmers ensuring that they are given support and guidance appropriate to the stage of their development.
We understand that every swimmer is different, on their own path to reaching their full potential. We make sure that we don't box swimmers in to set 'rules' where they must do certain things at specific ages, instead we make sure that the opportunities we give swimmers are appropriate to the stage of their development.
We value the performance attitude of swimmers above their natural ability and spaces in our squads are earnt through hard work, commitment and professionalism (but we still have lots of fun). This ensures that the environment our swimmers are in is one that breeds success.
Swim Chesterfield Academy
The Swim Chesterfield Academy was set originally between ourselves and Chesterfield Borough Council however we have now expanded to work with numerous other Learn to Swim providers.
It provides an important link between Learn to Swim programmes and Chesterfield Swimming Club ensuring that the transition is smooth and progressive.
Our approach gives young swimmers the opportunity to progress in to our Performance Pathway or Club Swimming programme at the right time with all the necessary skills, technique and preparation.

Our Club Swimming programme provides an exit route to swimmers who cannot commit to the demands of our Performance Pathway or who want to swim for more social and fitness reasons rather than to compete. It also encompasses a fantastic Masters Squad for swimmers aged 18+ which you can find more information about by visiting the Masters page of this website by clicking here.
Chesterfield Swimming Club was established in 1983 and now offers a comprehensive programme catering for all swimmers from toddlers and adults learning to swim to our high performance squads and competitive Masters swimmers.
Our Learn to Swim programme, 'School of Splash', operates out of its purpose built pool at Highfield Hall School while our club squads train in a number of pools, mainly Queen's Park Sports Centre but also Staveley Healthy Living Centre and Ponds Forge International Sports Centre.
Since our current Head Coach started working for the club in 2011 our success has grown and grown, consistently winning medals at National Championships and increasing it's presence at Regional Championships significantly.
The club is run by a dedicated group of volunteers, some form the committee who run the club, others are officials required for running swimming events, some are lifeguards, chaperones, website managers, squad reps, team managers, etc. but all of whom make the club successful and give it a great team and family based atmosphere.
