Prescot Swimming Club was established in 1967 in Prescot, near Liverpool, to promote the teaching of swimming and the coaching of swimmers at all levels of competition.
The Club is run entirely by volunteers in both coaching and administration. Through the dedication and skill of coaches over the years the Club has produced swimmers of national and international ability, some of whom have gone on to swim in European & Olympic competition.
It is fully affiliated to the Amateur Swimming Association and is swim21 accredited - the swimming "kite mark" for quality
The Club offers a warm and friendly atmosphere for swimmers. Parents / guardians are encouraged to stay and watch their child swim and discuss their development with the coaches.

Swimming and Squad Training
Prescot swimming club is a competitive swimming club. We competed in the Division 1 of the National Arena Swimming League and we also swim in Division 1 of the Merseyside and District Junior Swimming League. Last year also saw the club win Division C of the North West Micro League, gaining a place in Division B for 2018.
Alongside team events, all swimmers are encouraged to enter individual galas held throughout the North West. For example, the Tadpole League, organised by the City of Liverpool which runs in September each year, is a great introduction to competitive swimming for the younger swimmers.
Many of our swimmers progress to a high level in the sport and have access to train with Prescot Open Swimming Squad - see the Squad page for more details.
