We hope you had good break over the Summer and enjoyed the opportunity of recharging your batteries for a big swimming year ahead. 2018-19 was a fantastic year for Guildford City culminating in unprecedented success and British Summer Championships , English Summer Championships and the World Masters Championships. So many medals !!!

Let’s make 2019- 20 even more successful! We have a lot of new swimmers joining us in all parts of the Club from all over the swimming world, new Squad Lead Coaches who can’t wait to improve your fitness and skills, and a full time Land Training Coach to make you super strong.Since our Club has been designated a National Performance Centre by Swim England the standard is going to be set that much higher for our competitive swimmers who will all need to raise their game to the highest possible level.

We are ready to go ! You have all of the tools and facilities any athlete could possibly need to be World Class – Great coaches, Great support staff, and Great water time.

What are you going to do to distinguish yourself ? Will you commit to consistent training throughout the swimming year ? Will you limit your breaks from the training programme to a minimum ? Will you take on board the expert professional advise of your coaches and listen to them – I mean really listen to them ? In turn will you communicate with your coaches to make sure they know what you need ?

We have been Arena League South Champions since 2005 and Surrey County Champions since 2004. Unbeaten for 14 and 16 years respectively ! The longest winning streaks by far in both Arena League South and Surrey history. Add in our juniors long unbeaten run in the MK Junior League since joining in 2013 and we should all be bursting with pride that we are Guildford City!

When you pull on your shirt to represent Guildford City at any competitive event we want you to remember that you’re competing for the most successful Club in the history of South East England swimming. Wear your shirt with pride – compete with honour and be the best you can be !

It’s Great to be a Guildford Swimmer !
