If you’re keen to swim while you study with us, BU Swimming Club (which is run by our Students’ Union) offers competitive and social opportunities to get involved.
With the support of Poole Swimming Club as our local training partner, the focus is on the BUCS Short Course (25m pool) and Long Course (Olympic sized 50m pool) Championships alongside other swim meets across the year.
If, on the other hand, you’re looking to simply swim to keep fit and meet other students who enjoy swimming too, becoming part of BU Swimming Club (which prides itself on its fun and friendly atmosphere) is a great way to do this.
We’ve also teamed up with Everyone Active (which has two leisure centres with pools in neighbouring Poole), so you can swim as and when suits you, at an exclusive BU price for three months’ membership.
Available to: high performing, talented BU swimmers
Fees: £270 for three semesters (approximately £27 per month)
This includes annual Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) membership, affiliation and annual membership to Poole Swimming Club, five coached pool sessions a week (during term time), all training costs and BU Swim team hat.
