Winning's the Aim - Swimming's the Game: Catering for competitive and recreational swimmers alike.

Southampton University Swimming Club is a multidimensional club offering a high performance programme for our competitive members and a 'just for fitness' approach for our recreational swimmers. We aim to help our competitive members improve their swimming technique and enable them to compete at the highest possible level to maximise their potential. For our recreational swimmers we aim to build confidence through our supportive coached sessions and leave members feeling happier with their swimming ability.
 
We compete at many competitions throughout the year including all BUCS (British University & College Sport) competitions where we achieve great results and have regular individuals and teams swim in finals. Our local competitions include varsity, alumni gala, and an exciting new league with BUSL (British University Swimming League)

As one of the largest university societies we are well known for our social events and nights out. Every Wednesday members of both squads come together for a memorable social (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic), most of which involve fancy dress and activities. Our socials are a great opportunity for members to mingle and get to know each other out of the water. All our members are welcome and we're sure that they'll have a good time! 

In addition to our weekly socials members have the opportunity to go to one off events throughout the year including; Christmas dinner, Boat Ball, competition socials, and AU Ball organised by SUSU. All members also have the opportunity to go on Tour. Tour is a 5-day long holiday every year over the Easter break where swimmers get to soak up the sun and enjoy some away time with the club. Previous destinations of Tour include Majorca, Benalmadena, and Tenerife.

Matt Heathcock
Head Coach

Matt is a fantastic ASA Level 3 coach who has been working with Southampton University Swimming Club for several years now. He has been a Head Coach for 13 years now and holds this position at Swim Bournemouth, where he works with swimmers ranging from club level to international. He brings a vast amount of coaching experience to our club, with the ability to push our top swimmers but also improve the fitness of our recreational swimmers by guiding the other coaches and helping with their training plans. Matt is sure to lead both our coaches and swimmers to an extremely successful year in SUSC both competitively and also through the positivity he brings to poolside.

Jodie Yates
Assistant Head Coach

Jodie is both an ASA Level 1 coach and also an ASA Level 2 teacher who will be joining Southampton University Swimming Club for her first year this year. Jodie has been both coaching and teaching at two clubs for over five years and so has lots of experience in working with a range of abilities of swimmers and thus will be undoubtedly exceptional in adapting to and helping all of SUSC's swimmers in reaching their full potential during their time in the society. As being herself a previous regional level swimmer, Jodie can use her skills and experiences to get both the best out of our competitive squad and improve the technique and fitness of all the swimmers she coaches, competitive or recreational.
