Carnforth & District Otters ASC

A Lancaster based, SwimMark accredited 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 improve your technique or train to be a great club swimmer, our experienced ASA qualified coaches teach all of our members with a structured performance programme, for long-term athletic development. Backed by continuous professional development and direct coaching sessions from esteemed coach Ian Ingman.

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 club is run and coached entirely by volunteers, who give their time, knowledge and experience for the benefit of all swimmers in the club.

We run two main social events each year including the glitzy Presentation Evening awarding long-standing trophies to our swimmers, several galas for our younger and older swimmers and timetrails.

Yearly  we have abroad swim camp with week long 50m pool sessions.

Masters swim sessions for adults to train and take their bests to the next level.

Recently the club has made investments in an Electronic Timing System providing higher quality home galas with accurate and instant timing. Moved to an Online Management System improving communication, aiding competition entries, simplifying payments.

Looking for a premier swimming club where your child will find enjoyment while being encouraged and nurtured? Then, why not get in touch.
