Louth Swimming Club

/ Health & Fitness

The club has been running now for 35years. Totally run by Volunteers the small friendly club has steadily grown is size and reputation.

Based at the wonderful Meridian Leisure Centre our training facilities are second to none in the County.

Coming out a year of restrictions, swimming is beginning to come back to a form of normality and the club is looking to build from the bottom end. A fantastic opportunity for 7,8,9 year olds to become part of a family by starting their swimming journey with our entry squad Pods .

PODS (Sundays 3 – 4 pm)

Our Pod squad provides children with their first steps into the world of competitive swimming. It runs as a 10-week block of swimming sessions, including a trial session in the first block offered.


  • To teach basic competitive techniques (dives and turns)
  • To refine all strokes to a competitive standard
  • To improve aerobic fitness

10 Week Plan

  • Week 1 – Free trial
  • Week 2-9 – Teaching of basic techniques
  • Week 10 – Swimming pathway decided

What happens at the end of the 10 weeks

Participation in the 10 week block does not guarantee a full time place in the swimming club. However, there are three options in place to ensure that swimming can continue.

  • If most of the outcomes are achieved and they are of an age group needed, then your child will be offered either a full time place in Louth Swimming club, or a trial period at the discretion of the head coach.
  • If some of the outcomes are achieved then we will offer you the option of another 10 week block.
  • If your child is not making the progress required to be a competitive swimmer in our club, then, they could move across to the Meridian Squad.

Competitive swimming has many benefits, ones that will have a positive effect on your child’s health throughout their lives.

  1. Develop proper stroke techniques and become a stronger swimmer
  2. Exciting way to make friends and have fun
  3. Learn the importance of hard work
