About Us

City of Cambridge SC encompasses both competitive swimming and water polo and has a reputation for developing swimmers in a friendly, inclusive and supportive environment. We have over 300 members ranging from those just starting out in the sport, to masters competitors who have been swimming for decades.

The club has been successful at many levels during its history, regularly placing swimmers in national championships at age group, youth and senior levels, and water polo players to national squads. The club has also appeared in both the A and B finals of the national swimming league.

Our swimmers compete regularly at various open meets and league galas both locally and further afield. These competitions are carefully chosen to reflect the ability of the team entered and to provide the appropriate level of competition.

We are based at Cambridge Parkside Pools where most training sessions take place although other pools in the city and surrounding area are also used in order to meet the needs of the club's comprehensive training programmes.

The Club's Mission, apart from promoting the sport of swimming, is to help to maximise the potential of every individual. This is achieved through the dedication and expertise of our coaching teams, the help of our supporters and volunteers and the work of the Committee.

We are affiliated to the Cambridgeshire and East Region ASA and are Swim 21 accredited for skill development.

How the Club Runs

The Executive Committee runs the Club in a way that follows the Club Constitution as determined at the annual AGM. The Committee aims to meet on the first Thursday of every month. If there are any views that you would like aired or points you would like to make, please ask a committee member to raise the issue at the monthly Exec meeting. If you prefer please contact us, and it will be discussed at the next committee meeting, or sooner if urgent action is required.

The committee consists of a volunteer group of parents and supporters, elected each year at the AGM. The committee's duties are very wide ranging. Finances, membership, pool hire, arranging competitions, discipline, social activities, coaching matters and matters involving the ASA are just a few. If you have any ideas or proposals for improving the Club in any way, please contact any Committee member .
