Our Story

Harbour swim club is the oldest and largest swim club in Bermuda. Formed in 1974 and celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, it continues to go from strength to strength, working with each child to maximize their ability and help them reach their individual objectives.  The club works to develop swimmers from the junior age, through competitive seniors and finally helping many represent Bermuda internationally at both the age group and national levels.

The club currently has a membership of approximately 170 swimmers with over ten different squads to accommodate all levels and age groups.

Success in swimming comes from hard work, technical excellence, mental toughness and focused practice that often translates up to nine training sessions a week for our senior swimmers, and over fifteen hours of training. Many of these sessions require them to be in the pool at 6am and this requires constant discipline, a high level of fitness and good dietary habits. It also requires regular competition both here in Bermuda and on the international stage as they continue their development and grow as athletes and young adults.

Harbour’s programmes are producing outstanding swimmers who are currently competing overseas at age group and senior levels including the following competitions:

  • The Caribbean Free Trade Association Games (CARIFTA)
  • The Central American and Caribbean Confederation Swimming Championships (CCCAN)
  • The PANAM Games
  • The Commonwealth Games
  • World Swimming Championships and ultimately we hope the Olympic Games.

There are numerous benefits gained from swimming.  Whether it’s acquiring strong discipline as a way of life or utilizing the sport as a lifestyle choice that helps maintain fitness and health in the swimmer’s day-to-day lives.  Harbour coaches and leadership offer these life skills to all swimmers at all levels.
