Welcome to the website of Skipton Swimming Club! We are a friendly club aiming to promote and encourage the sport of competitive swimming. Based in Skipton in North Yorkshire, we are affiliated to the North East ASA and the Yorkshire Swimming Association , and are accredited to Swim21 at Skill Development level.
The Club operates in a friendly atmosphere which encourages its members to develop in a relaxed but committed environment. Members that show commitment will undoubtedly personally benefit from the results of their hard work, as well as having the satisfaction of being a member of a great team of friends.
We welcome swimmers of all ages and abilities. Swimmers enter into competitive swimming through our progressive squad structure. The Club holds or attends competitions for all ages and abilities. The purpose of this is to provide a natural progression for the swimmer ranging from the Club’s Novice Gala to National Competition.
See the report on the British Summer Championships where our own Ned Sharpe won a Gold and two silver Medals!!
He also set two all time British records for a 13yr old and he is the first ever Skipton Swimming Club Champion at this event!!
