Yeovil & District Swimming Club’s vision is to provide young swimmers with the optimum environment and the right opportunities at each stage of their development to enable them to achieve excellence. We will continue to strive for gold medal success through the provision of seamless pathways from early skill development to the National standard and beyond.
YDSC is a competitive swimming club which has a structure for the long-term development of its swimmers. Members are given opportunities to train with swimmers of a similar standard under the supervision of qualified swimming coaches.
Our Club’s Squad Structure is made to provide all swimmers with the opportunity to progress their swimming ability through the well-structured swim and land training sessions.
An Annual Presentation celebration is held where members’ achievements at all levels are awarded.
