Mission Statement

The club aims to encourage the local community to participate in swimming whether for fitness or competitively. The programme aims to provide the right environment so that every member is given the opportunity to develop their skills and reach their full potential. 

There are opportunities for members to compete at club, county, regional, national or beyond, depending on their own ability, and for people with disabilities the chance to swim for fun or compete at disability events, regional, national, or Special Olympics. 

A voluntary run sports club there is the opportunity for members to develop personally by volunteering as a committee member, coach or official.

HSC is proud to be a coach led programme with the full support of an active General Committee.
