Coached Pool Swimming

Coached pool sessions run throughout the year.  

We currently have 8 coached sessions held in 3 different pools in Taunton. 

You need to become a member of our Club to join the coached sessions (although you do not need to be a triathlete, many members only swim).  You can try two swim sessions before committing to membership.
