Winning's the Aim — Swimming's the Game: Catering for competitive and recreational swimmers alike

Winning's the Aim - Swimming's the Game: Catering for competitive and recreational swimmers alike.

Southampton University Swimming Club is a multidimensional club offering a high performance programme for our competitive members and a 'just for fitness' approach for our recreational swimmers. We aim to help our competitive members improve their swimming technique and enable them to compete at the highest possible level to maximise their potential. For our recreational swimmers we aim to build confidence through our supportive coached sessions and leave members feeling happier with their swimming ability.

We compete at many competitions throughout the year including all BUCS (British University & College Sport) competitions where we achieve great results and have regular individuals and teams swim in finals. Our local competitions include, varsity and an exciting new league with BUSL (British University Swimming League). 

As one of the largest university societies we are well known for our social events and nights out. Every Wednesday members of both squads come together for a memorable social (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic), many of which involve fancy dress and activities. Our socials are a great opportunity for members to mingle and get to know each other out of the water. All our members are welcome and we're sure that they'll have a good time! 

In addition to our weekly socials, members have the opportunity to go to one off events throughout the year including; Christmas dinner, Boat Ball, competition socials, and AU Ball organised by SUSU. All members also have the opportunity to go on Tour. Tour is a 5-day long holiday every year over the Easter break where swimmers get to soak up the sun and enjoy some away time with the club. Previous destinations of Tour include Majorca, Benalmadena, and Tenerife.
