Established over 40 years ago, we have been serving West Leicestershire since 1969. As a testament to our founding families, many original members still actively engage with our club today, entrusting their next generation of swimmers into our care, supporting us as coaches or volunteers or simply assisting in the running of our club as committee members.
In the last 40+ years, the club has been able to develop hundreds of swimmers to compete and succeed at both national and international competitions with a current squad of over 120 young people. The club also acted as a stepping stone for many of our young people into regional and national performance squads through its skill and fitness based training regimes and coaching support to its individuals.
It is therefore no surprise that our Learn to Swim programme, established over 25 years ago has proven to become very popular within the local area and we enjoy contributing to our community by offering such a vital programme to support the fitness of young people.
Truly supportive of our members, Braunstone Swimming Club offer even more! Many of our young swimmers and their parents are developed into ASA accredited junior and senior swimming assistants, life guards or swimming teachers and coaches as well as officials and time keepers to both enable them to support the club, as well as offer additional
opportunities for their
own careers and
And there’s always our core value – a family friendly and fun environment! We demonstrate this through hosting regular GB Challenge cups, a fun opportunity for our young learn to swim students to integrate in a competitive environment with their older peers, where girls compete against boys in a range of fun races.
As a club we recognise the importance of building a cohesive and harmonious team of swimmers to support each other. We therefore take great pride in our extensive social calendar offering events throughout the year such as bowling nights, local and national trips, as well as opportunities for home and foreign training camps such as London or Crete.
Our annual events calendar culminates in our annual Christmas Gala, engaging both swimmers and parents to take part, making new friends and enjoying each others’ successes.
JBraunstone Swimming Club therefore is not just about being a successful competitor -
