The University of Bath is associated with a number of clubs who make use of the facilities at the Sports Training Village. They include:
Team Bath AS provides a structured pathway for local swimmers of all levels to realise their maximum potential, from first competitions and galas through to competing at National and International level. They work in partnership with clubs across Somerset and West Wiltshire to provide the best development programme for talented swimmers in the area.
Based at the University of Bath Sports Training Village, the Team Bath AS performance programme is served by three squads – Transition, Potential and Performance – and has a membership base of around 100 swimmers, whose training is overseen by a vastly experienced Head Coach.
In addition, they are developing Team Bath AS Academy Swimming to provide opportunities for younger talented swimmers in Bath to join, train and learn the skills they would need to compete in squads at higher levels.
Team Bath AS is proud to have as its patrons Stephanie Millward MBE and Sharron Davies MBE.
“We have realised after London 2012 that nurturing talent is essential and our kids now can aspire to be the best they can be….and take on the world. Clubs like this do exactly that and help so many on their journey. Swimming is a life skill as well as a fantastic sport and it has been a wonderful plus in my life.” Sharron Davies MBE
