Hart Swimming Club has evolved from its very humble beginnings in a basic wooden shed to a friendly, vibrant and competitive swimming club with an array of training sessions held in the brand new £23m Hart Leisure Centre in Fleet, Hampshire. Training, with the aim of encouraging competitive swimming, is provided by qualified coaches to swimmers ranging from 7 years to 70 years.
OUR LOCKDOWN STORY
During the COVID-19 lockdowns of 2020 & 2021, Hart SC worked tirelessly to ensure the club helped protect and support the mental and physical wellbeing of all our members.
The club did this by ensuring regular exercise was set, virtual live yoga sessions, regular squad social zoom calls, zoom calls with sports phycologists & sports nutritionists, fun competitions, family quiz nights, community fundraises to help support our local hospitals, fun video compilations for social media and set up a series of incredible speaker sessions over zoom with Olympians such as Duncan Goodhew, Sharon Davies, James Guy, Katy Sexton, Max & Joe Litchfield, Keri-Anne Payne & Siobhan-Marie O'Connor, to name a few.
Hart Swimming Club is a member of the Hants and South Coast Leagues and the National Arena Swimming Leagues (South). Our swimmers enter a number of Open Meets throughout the swimming year (September-July) and these cover all abilities. We have swimmers competing at National, Regional and County level. Hart Swimming Club also hosts several in-house Club Meets during the year, as well as several extremely successful and over subscribed Open Meets.
SQUADS & TRAINING
Hart Swimming Club provides dynamic coaching to progress swimmers through the formative squads to performance swimming. Our formative squads have swimmers as young as seven and here the emphasis is on instilling proper technique for all strokes and starts and turns. Progression through the four formative squads to the four performance squads is at the coaches' discretion when swimmers are deemed ready. All training sessions are tailored in number and content to the ability of the relative squad.
Whether you swim laps for fitness, want to train and compete seriously as a Masters swimmer, or are a triathlete looking to complement your training, then Hart Swimming Club Masters is for you. The Masters Squad caters for all swimmers from 18 years of all abilities and has dedicated coaches providing tailored training sessions to improve technique and stamina.
BOOK A TRIAL
New swimmer trials are regularly being arranged. Swimmers are welcomed and assessed on ability by our coaches during the trials and allocated to squads ranging from formative to performance abilities. Hart Swimming Club achieved SwimMark accreditation at competitive development in 2009 and continues to develop within this programme. SwimMark is SwimEngland's aquatic quality mark for the development of effective, ethical and sustainable affiliated clubs.
