About Harbour Swim Club
Harbour swim club is the oldest and largest swim club in Bermuda. Formed in 1974 and celebrating its 45th anniversary this year it continues to go from strength to strength, working with each child to maximize their own ability and help them reach their individual objectives. We work to develop swimmers from the junior age, through competitive seniors and finally helping many to represent Bermuda internationally at both the age group and national levels.
Success in swimming comes from hard work, technical excellence, mental toughness and being focused in practice that often translates to up to nine 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 current programmes are producing outstanding swimmers who are currently competing overseas at age group levels including the following competitions:
- The Caribbean Free Trade Association Games (CARIFTA).
- The Central American and Caribbean Confederation Swimming Championships (CCCAN).
- We are striving to have our swimmers represent their country nationally at The Island Games, The PANAM Games, The Commonwealth Games, World Swimming Championships and ultimately The Olympic Games.
There are clearly numerous benefits, that range from acquiring the discipline as a way of life, viewing the sport as a lifestyle choice that help them remain fit and healthy in their day to day lives, whether they compete locally or internationally.
