Whatever your age, you are welcome at Woolacombe SLSC.
The club is split into 4 sections; Nippers and Limpets, Youth, Seniors, Masters. We run training for all sections in both Summer and Winter.
Nippers start in the year of their 8th birthday when they become eligible to compete for the club. Nippers compete in age groups at county and national competitions. Minimum swimming standards are required to join. We take Limpets from the age of 6. A family member or responsible adult is expected to attend with all Limpets and we encourage parents to get involved with Nippers, particularly on the beach and in the sea.
From the year they turn 13, Nippers transition into the Youth section. There is a one year overlap between the sections where children can choose to attend either section. Most attend and compete in both! After the Nipper Junior year, Youth compete in double age groups; U15, U17. U19.
This open category is for anyone over the age of 16 with no age groups.
Masters compete in 10 year age groups to keep it fair!
