SASC aims to help members to achieve their full potential as swimmers and as healthy, confident and responsible young people. We seek to provide a safe, supportive environment where members have fun training and entering competitions. Swimmers are encouraged to take pride in their performance as they develop skills, achieve personal goals and contribute to the success of the team. There are also opportunities for senior members to gain experience and qualifications in various activities related to swimming (such as lifeguard training, timekeeping, team management and coaching). The club is a voluntary organisation which relies on the involvement of parents and senior swimmers in club activities and management.
