Swimming and Aquatic Development
The Swimming and Aquatic Development Officer’s aims are to increase participation in swimming and other aquatic disciplines within Wrexham County Borough. This is through school swimming, the learn to swim programme (adults and juniors), free swimming, aquatic clubs, and other aquatic disciplines.
The development officer works with non-swimmers through to elite athletes within the county following a comprehensive Aquatic Development Plan.
Swimming is a sport that is accessible to all and it is never too late to learn! Swimming is the nation’s second largest participation activity (after walking) and is an excellent way to meet new people and get fit at the same time.
- People can learn to swim at any time - you can become fitter through swimming at any time in your life
- Swimming is great fun
- You don’t have to be an expert
- Swimming is a great social sport
- The ability to swim will enable you to participate in many other sports and activities such as kayaking, surfing, aqua aerobics and water polo.
- Swimming is ideally placed to help with obesity, osteoarthritis and cardiovascular disease
- And most importantly the ability to swim could save your life
