In a significant development for the local swimming community, Team Bath AS has secured exclusive pool time at the Dragonfly Leisure in Midsomer Norton. This initiative responds to the growing demand for increased pool facilities and swimming lessons nationwide.

Commencing on 3rd September, the Club will introduce four new squads on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, offering weekly swimming opportunities for young swimmers in the area. This initiative, supported by Somerset ASA and Swim England SouthWest, aims to expand training options for young swimmers aged 7+ who are keen to embark on their competitive swimming journey.

Matt Wise, Dragonfly Leisure CEO, expressed his excitement about the partnership with Team Bath AS: “Dragonfly Leisure is delighted to collaborate with Team Bath AS to provide this new opportunity for local swimmers. We believe this venture will not only address the current demand but also inspire a new generation of swimmers in our community.”

Taster Sessions

To kick-off the new program, Team Bath AS complimentary taster sessions will take place on Tuesday, 25th June and Wednesday, 3rd July between 7:30 and 8:30 pm. The sessions are aimed at swimmers who can swim 25m and are at or have achieved, Learn to Swim Level 7 and above or the equivalent swimming standard. During these sessions, swimmers will have the chance to experience a one-hour coached swimming session led by Team Bath AS’s Head of Swimming, Liam Willcox.

Upon successful participation, selected swimmers will have the opportunity to join one of the new squads based at Midsomer Norton. Limited places are available. If you would like to register your swimmer for a taster session, please click here to reserve a place before 14 June.

We are thrilled to collaborate and support young swimmers on their competitive swimming journey.”
