About Us

Chester-le-Street ASC are a local amateur swimming club, offering children the opportunity to participate in swimming as a competitive sport. Established in 1975, the club has developed in size and stature during the years, boasting some tremendously talented young athletes along the way and achieving significant success on a local, regional, national and even international stage during its forty year history.

As a club, we encourage participation at all levels from our teaching squads through to our performance swimmers, with professional and targeted coaching offered at all levels.

On a competitive level, we are committed to supporting and developing our young athletes along their swimming journey, helping them to excel in their chosen sport and achieve their personal goals.

Across our site, you will find information on competitions, results, details on how to join the club, and up to date information on up and coming events amongst many other things.

Our site is updated on a regular basis, and  we value feedback from our members regarding any information which they would find useful. If there is anything which you feel we should include on our site, please let us know via our contact page.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
