CADS is a competitive swimming club committed to producing a high standard of swimming. We pride ourselves on teaching children to swim all strokes correctly and later to move on to swimming these strokes as fast as they are able.
Each child is important to us, whether they are just learning to swim or entering a high levels of competition. Our swimmers are split into different groups, all with various training times, squad criteria and monthly costs.
We also have our own swim school - Bubbles, teaching children initially how to swim.
On your first visit, our Head Coach and a member of our teaching team or committee member, will assess your child's swimming ability and advise of the appropriate group. In addition you will receive a welcome pack and all of the details you need to make an informed decision when choosing if CADS is the ideal swimming club for you.
