We would like to introduce you to Chadderton Amateur Swimming Club, a club which has been in existence for over 120 years, and whose main claim to fame is Henry Taylor, an Olympic Champion.

In 2006 the club achieved Swim 21 status which is the recognised ‘Clubmark’ for swimming clubs, and ensures that the club has achieved, and must continue to meet, high standards in all areas. You will see several logos used on club letters and kit.

The main club night is Tuesday in the new Henry Taylor pool at the Chadderton Wellbeing centre.  New swimmers are invited to try a taster session on Tuesdays or Fridays at 6pm.

More advanced swimmers have sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

During the year, we hold our own Club Galas, where children compete in all strokes over 3 distances.  Medals and certificates for all galas and leagues are awarded at a Presentation Evening.

Chadderton ASC competes in Central Lancashire league galas – Junior, Senior, Intermediate and Jubilee Leagues.

Swimmers are also encouraged to swim in the Central Lancs Age groups and Greater Manchester meets.

For swimmers who achieve an appropriate level, the club may recommend further training with the OCLL’s Advanced Training scheme. (A.T.S.)

Chadderton A.S.C. has worked hard in promoting the image of the club, and the children are encouraged to purchase swimwear and accessories.

There is also a good social side to our club, including Presentation Evening with hot supper, quiz & music, and also Christmas events.
