Welcome to the Staines Swimming Club website
Staines Swimming Club strives to promote swimming in the boroughs of Spelthorne, Runnymede and the surrounding area. With the aim of providing its members with a structured programme, we strive to ensure that they fulfil their potential whatever their ability.
My name is Matt and I am very excited to be joining Staines Swimming Club as Junior Coach and Gala Coordinator from the 31st August 2014.
Currently I work teaching and coaching swimming at different venues across Hillingdon. Since the age of 9 I have been a competitive member of Hillingdon Swimming Club, and have competed at a County, Regional and National level as well as training with and representing the University of Portsmouth while studying.
I am looking forward to start the new season with you all and working together to fulfill your goals. As Michael Phelps said "I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it, and put the work and time into it".
So this season I want each of you to be the best you can be. We will be working on a diverse programme including stroke techniques, starts and finishes, and underwater work helping you achieve your full potential.
Enjoy the rest of the summer, I look forward to seeing you on the 31st August.

New Assistant Head Coach
Dear Swimmers / Parents,
We are very please to be able to introduce Robert Crofts to the swimming club. Some swimmers will have met him already when he coached a couple of sessions at the club in November.
Robert has been working within swimming for a number of years as a Teacher, Coach and Head Coach at clubs near his home in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. Currently an ASA level 2 swimming coach Robert has been working through and almost completed his level 3 coaching qualification with one more unit left to finish. In 2013 Robert achieved a 2.1 BSc(hons) degree in Sports Studies with high relevance to the position he will be taking up at Staines SC.
Robert will be getting involved with the club over the next few weeks and then will be starting his full time role in early January.
We look forward to welcoming Robert to the team at Staines Swimming Club and are sure he will be an integral part of the clubs future development.
