Welcome to Hallam Swimming!

Who are we?

Hallam Swimming is a very popular and successful sports team at Sheffield Hallam University, who cater to students with a range of abilities from recreational swimmers to performance athletes competing at National and even International standard.

Hallam Swimming is one of Team Hallam’s “Performance Sports”, meaning that the team benefits from increased investment for high performance athletes. In addition, the team is run in close partnership with City of Sheffield Swim Squad, ensuing access to world class facilities and high-quality coaching. This is offered both in the pool and in gym sessions at the Strength and Conditioning Suite.

Training

Hallam Squad

The Hallam Squad is our main group which caters to students who want to train to compete. Our competitive focus within the Hallam Squad is BUSL (British University Swim League), which we were crowned champions in 19/20, in addition to BUCS, Varsity and other meets swimmers may qualify for. There is also additional sports science support including S&C, physio, nutrition and psychology available to all who purchase the Team Hallam Ultimate Membership, which we highly encourage all of our members to do, to make the most out of our status as a performance sport. 

The group gets 5 hours of pool time per week plus 3 x S&C sessions provided by the professional coaches at Team Hallam.

With capacity and logistics in mind, as much as we try to get as many people involved with the sport, the Hallam Squad asks for swimmers to have reached county level competitively as a minimum. 

Hallam Performance

Hallam Performance allows those athletes wanting more training to access extra pool sessions to increase their weekly training run in partnership with City of Sheffiled Swim Squad. This will be provided with an extra fee per month on their membership.There is also additional sports science support including S&C, physio, nutrition and psychology available to all who purchase the Team Hallam Ultimate Membership, which we highly encourage all of our members to do, to make the most out of our status as a performance sport.

Socials

Both in and out of the pool, we are a close team. Every Wednesday we hold our weekly team social, each week with a different theme, it is a great way for the swimmers across all groups to get together and blow off some steam. Whether or not you're into going out, or have important competitions coming up, there are a range of events and activities throughout the year which allows all members to get involved. Other activities we have hosted include, laser tag, bowling, meals and trips to inflatable parks.

Where we train

Our home pool is Ponds Forge International Sports Centre, which is home to the British National Championships and other major swimming and sporting events. The 10 lane 50m pool allows us to train in an exceptional facility with a mixture of both SC and LC training and access to diving blocks and other technical equipment.

For our gym sessions, we have land circuit sessions at Ponds Forge or Hallam Active and Strength and Conditioning sessions at the Pearson Building on Collegiate campus. This is an exceptional facility provided by the university and in conjunction with the high-level coaches, allows our athletes to reach their potential.
