Who Are We?
Runcorn Reps are a competitive swimming club based in the Runcorn area. The club is accredited by Swim 21, and is run by volunteers who all have ASA swimming coaching qualifications and full DBS checks. Enrolling swimmers from the age of 8 years upwards, our focus is to provide opportunities for each swimmer to regularly train and further encourage them to compete within Regional Swimming Galas. The club also encourages swimmers to take part in a range of competitions as part of a team, within the Merseyside and District swimming league.
Training sessions are held each week – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. Dependent upon the swimmer’s level and ability, our Head Coach will advise which sessions you should attend. Sessions are held at Brookvale recreation centre and Runcorn Pool in the old town, each pool has four lanes of different abilities to accommodate your level.
Each year, Swimmers from A&B squad are invited to attend The BEST Centre in Colonia Sant Jordi Mallorca for one week, to experience a warm weather training camp. Accompanied by our Senior Coaches the swimmers have intense coaching by the centres very experienced international coaches. This provides the swimmers with invaluable skills which further improve their abilities.
