About AASC

Introduction

The Club was formed in 1980 and became a Limited Company in 2005, the year of the Club’s 25th anniversary. In the past, the Club has trained swimmers to compete at a very high level, for example the Olympic and Commonwealth Games and our aim is to get back to this level. We hope that this information pack will help you to understand more about the LTS and the Club. However, if you still have questions, please ask a member of the committee. This Information Pack has contact details of all committee members and of people with a role within the Club.
