Who We Are?

Our Mission

Over the years, Swim1st has nurtured swimmers at every level – from youngsters starting out to potential Olympic and World Champions. We have grown in size and reputation but strive to develop and encourage grass roots swimming as well as elite performance.

Swimming with Swim1st provides individuals a platform from which they discover, enjoy – and conquer – the realms of competition. Along the way, swimmers learn lifelong skills such as effective time management, dedication and goal setting – all of which transfer to successful adult life.

Extraordinary Experiences

“Took My son to Swim1st Training yesterday for his first competition. we were blown away by the pool, the atmosphere and the friendliness by everyone. I hope we have the chance to come back!”
"We pride ourselves on being one of the only Clubs to cover the 'bridging gap' between the school, social swimmer and competitive clubs, we also pride ourselves on continuous athlete development and taking our swimmers to the next level."
“I love Swim1st, sometimes it is stressful but nothing that isn’t manageable. The people around you is what makes it the best place to be. Everyone has the same goal.”
