The North West Regional Disability Swim Squad of swimnorthwest
….. is for serious swimmers of all ages who have a disability. Our aim is to prepare and advise people from North West England who enjoy competitive swimming, for entry into the Regional team at the National Open and Junior Championships run by Disability Sport Events.
Never too young, and never too old, we are open to those with a physical disability, visual or hearing impairment, or learning difficulties.
As well as a Regional Gala, we run regular Squad Training sessions at the world-class Manchester Aquatics Centre. *
Keen on swimming? Know a disability swimmer? Live in Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire or Merseyside?
