There is a competitive element in the club and we encourage swimmers to take part in competitions, either to represent the club or to swim individually, depending on the kind of competitions available. However, there is no obligation to compete - swimming is for enjoyment as well!

A range of graded competitions are entered so that swimmers of all levels of achievement are given the opportunity to represent the club. The club enters teams in the North Yorkshire League and Ridings League.

Once a year we hold the annual Club Championships, in which all swimmers are encouraged to take part, including beginners!
