Killerwhales Swim Club of Havering was founded in late 1976 with the prime objective to coach competitive swimming to children from within the borough and local surrounding areas.
In addition to coaching, the club also teaches children how to swim in its Learn-to-Swim School. It is normally from teaching children how to swim that they show an interest to progress on and swim competitively. The club is able to satisfy the child’s swim development needs through its transitional section the Super Swimming Group. It is during this period that the child’s abilities and desire will equalise providing them with the basis to move into the structured swimming squads.
By following the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) National Teaching Plan the club ensure that swimmers are developed to recognised levels using proven methods. The club has many hours of pool time available throughout different swimming pools within the borough. This diverse spread of pools at varying times ensures that needs of each swimmer whether it be teaching, developing, coaching can reasonably be met, thus maximising the individual swimmer’s potential.
The club has won many honours including National Age Group Championships Top Club Title, Regional Top Club and Essex County Championships Top Club. More than thirty years after its foundation we continue to produce County Champions, London Region Champions and National finalists.
