About us

Ever since the modern Club was founded in 1950, Tuam Swimming Club has been teaching and coaching swimming in the Tuam area. For over 70 years, a dedicated and committed team of volunteers has taught beginners to swim and coached competitive swimmers to national success. The voluntary ethos and commitment on which the club was founded continues today. (See full history)

In 2013 Swim Ireland named Tuam Swimming Club as the Connacht Club of the Year.

The Club season normally runs from mid-September until the end of July. We accept members who can comfortably swim one length of the pool (25m).

Our primary objective is to prepare swimmers for competitive swimming, but we also cater for a very large cohort who want to improve their stroke technique while also improving their fitness and stamina.

New members would normally attend our Saturday and Sunday evening training sessions. We have the use of all six lanes in the pool on these evenings so we can cater for a wide range of abilities.

The Club coaches will decide and advise parents on the most appropriate sessions for members to attend.

Tuam Swimming Club is ‘not for profit’ organisation. None of the Club’s teachers, coaches or officers is paid anything for the work they do. They do this work voluntarily to promote swimming in the Tuam area. They have all been Garda vetted and have attended appropriate child safeguarding courses.
