This is a club for people with a learning disability as per the SOGB criteria.
Peterborough Special Olympic Swimming Group offer 1 hour sessions with a Level 2 lead coach and volunteer Level 1 coaches at the Jack Hunt Pool for technique and stroke development.
Many of their swimmers compete at Special Olympic galas representing the club. They have some swimmers who also have swum for Eastern Region at the GB National Special Olympic Summer Games. They even have one swimmer who swims at international level for DSS GB.
They have the whole pool for the club at their sessions. Swimmers are divided into lanes by swim level ability. Swimmers have to be able to swim 25m unaided without touching the sides or lane ropes and be able to follow instructions as staff are unable to provide 1:1 support.
For potential swimmers they offer three free sessions before signing up to the club, and then paying the monthly fee and annual insurance.
