If you are interested in joining Wigan Swimming Club (Wasps) the coaching staff and committee would like you to consider these few points:

  • If you have achieved the minimum of Stage 6 upwards of the Amateur Swimming Associations National Plan for Teaching Swimming:
Stage 6 – Developing effective swimming skills – including coordinated breathing – across all strokes is the focus of this stage. Learners also have to swim a distance of 25 metres using a stroke of the swimmer’s choice. Children also learn about aspects of water safety and about preparing properly for exercise.

Stage 7 – During this stage, children develop quality stroke techniques up to 100 metres incorporating the skills they have learned, and combine them to develop a linked routine. They also complete successfully an obstacle course that combines a variety of skills accomplished through stages 1-7.

  • If you can swim 50m (2 lengths) of Frontcrawl, Backstroke and Breaststroke of good standard and technique and have an understanding of Butterfly.
