We're based in Poynton! 🙂 Not enough?
Poynton Dippers exists to provide the community of Poynton and surrounding villages with a swimming club and to promote the sport of swimming in our area.
Poynton Dippers aims to provide an experience for people of all ages and abilities, to build technique, stamina, and learn to compete at any level to which they aspire.
No matter what age you are swimming is fun! Yes we train, sometimes we train hard, yes we compete, but its important to us to enjoy what we do and have fun along the way.
For the elite we provide a pathway into clubs like Macclesfield Satellites who prepare swimmers for competition at county, regional, national and even international level. On the flip side, we welcome swimmers from other clubs who have tried it, want to continue to improve their swimming, but unable to make the commitments required by other clubs.
Poynton Dippers provides a pathway through our Juniors, Seniors, Masters groups, as well as the opportunities to become a young volunteer (age 14+) which can lead into swim teaching, coaching, or life guarding which many of our members have followed over the years.
The safety of our members is of great importance to us. The majority of our members are children. We therefore ensure all our coaches have up to date DBS and Safeguarding certificates. We implement the Swim England Wave Power policies on welfare. We have a dedicated Welfare officer who has been specifically trained by Swim England for the role.
We encourage members to look out for other members through our members code of conduct and parents' code of conduct policies.
