Leyland Barracudas are a Leyland based SwimMark accredited competitive swimming club. This website provides information about the club for existing and prospective members.
Our carefully tailored training pathways support all swimmers. Younger swimmers begin their journey in our small pool, focussing on technique, right through to our most intense pathway for swimmers who are aiming at achieving National level. We pride ourselves in understanding our swimmer’s individual goals and offering a friendly environment in which they can achieve their full potential.
Here are a few words from Elaine Fitchie, Founding Member and Club President
Being part of any club isn’t just about improving your personal athletic ability, it’s about developing you as an individual. We all know that exercise is good for us and swimming provides great exercise, but the club environment provides you with so much more. Exposure to competition provides a great basis to develop you as a ‘team player’ – an attribute that will come into play throughout your life. You will learn how competition works in a safe and supportive environment, enjoying lots of great shared experiences which can lead to long-lasting friendships. You’ll learn how to understand and respect the rules which keep the sport fair and safe and how to show commitment to the team and training. You’ll also learn that the harder you try, the more likely you are to achieve and succeed. Most of all though we want you to enjoy it!
