Stone And District Swimming Club
To Stone And District Swimming Club
We are a club run by volunteers that emphasises the teaching and practice of swimming to all ages in a fun and enjoyable way. Most of our staff hold Swim England Level 1 or 2 swimming teaching qualifications.
The Club is based at Alleyne’s High Sports Centre, Oulton Road, Stone and our sessions are on Saturday morning and Monday evening. See our ‘Information’ section for further details about how we operate.
If you or your child are looking to join the Club, please ring Jean Brough our Membership Secretary on (01785) 813175.
We are particularly looking to encourage more adult swimmers to our Monday 8pm to 9pm session where you can swim at your leisure or improve your fitness and stroke technique under the supervision of some of our teachers.
If you are able to help out on the poolside or behind the scenes in another role, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
We follow the Swim England National Plan for swimming. If you have any experience of teaching swimming to advanced, intermediate, or beginners, or you have an interest in swimming and would perhaps like to receive partially-funded IOS Level 1 training to support our swimmers, please do not hesitate to get in touch via the Club website or come along to talk to one of our volunteers on a Monday evening (6.30pm to 8.00pm) or Saturday morning (8.30am to 10.15am).
We have a passion for swimming but ensure that our members have fun and enjoy their learning.
Why not give it a go and join our group of volunteers?
It has been a while since the club has met, due to the closure of Alleynes Pool. Originally we were due to start back on the 18th of March, in the new pool at Westbridge Park. That has now been changed, and it is likely (not confirmed) that we will start back on the 8th of April (Monday). At the committee meeting last night, it was decided that because the club has not met for many weeks, that it would be sensible to postpone the SADSC Awards and Social evening at The Crossing on the 16th March, until after we have restarted at the new pool. Last years awards can be handed in to Jean during that time. For anyone who has paid fees to Jean during the first couple of weeks, it has all been recorded and refunds/adjustments will be made when we meet up again as a club. It's been a rocky time for the club since November last year and we hope you'll look forward to the time when we can swim as a club again. Thanks for your understanding.
Some good news....
We have recently received a cheque for £500 from Stone Town Council as part of their Community Awards Scheme. The money will go towards the costs of moving to the new pool at Westbridge Park and teacher training. Other great news is that Ian Hall and Philippa Boote, have recently qualified as Swim England, Level 1, Swim Teaching Assistants. Well done to you both and congratulations.
