Carnforth Otters – a Lancaster based competitive swimming club and home to a world record holder, a 2012 Olympic finalist, and a place where young people not only have fun, but are inspired and motivated to be the very best swimmers they can be.

Whether you aspire to be an Olympic champ, or just want to learn to swim or train to be a great club swimmer, our 25 experienced ASA qualified coaches teach all of our members with a structured performance programme, for long-term athletic development.

We are an extremely friendly club with swimmers aged 4 to masters, training to compete in club, regional, and national events, at Lancaster’s Salt Ayre pool and three others in the locality. Our sessions run seven days a week.
