National Training Centre
Team Bath is home to one of British Swimming’s British Gas National Training Centres.
The network of centres was created by British Swimming to provide athletes with a fully integrated training programme at each location and provide a daily world-class training environment for swimming development, offering a full range of pool and land-based facilities.
The Bath centre is headed up by David McNulty. London 2012 Olympic silver medallist Michael Jamieson is among the swimmers who have trained at the Bath NCS, along with fellow Olympic medallists Jazz Carlin, Siobhan-Marie O’Connor and Chris Walker-Hebborn.
Jamieson combined training for the Olympics with studying at the University of Bath. He graduated with a Sports Performance degree in 2013. NTC swimmer Andrew Willis is studying Chemical Engineering at the University.
The team training at the centre also have access to a full range of support services, including strength and conditioning, physiotherapy and massage.
