Welcome to Stratford Sharks
Stratford Sharks swimming club is a friendly, family-orientated swimming club in Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire.
The club is inclusive and caters for competitive swimmers of all abilities and ages. Swimmers can join the academy squads once they are in stage 7+ of swimming lessons or stage 6+ for pre-academy. We have swimmers from club to national level across our squads and swimmers aged from 6 to 60. Most swimmers join between the ages of 8 and 11.
Most of our swimmers join after completing stages 1-7 of swimming with Everyone Active at Stratford or Shipston Leisure centre. Sharks also regularly welcome swimmers into the club who have completed lessons with other local swimming schools.
Competitive swimming is a great, fun activity for young people. As well as keeping the swimmers fit it teaches young people to handle success and failure, boosts self-confidence and leads to strong friendships.
