Welcome to Hallam Swimming
Who we are...
Hallam Swimming is a popular and successful club at Hallam, with opportunities for a range of abilities from recreational swimming to training international athletes with a varied training program to cater to all strokes and events. The club is one of Team Hallam's 'Focus Sports' meaning it benefits from increased investment for high performance sport, and is run in partnership with the City of Sheffield Swimming Club, ensuring access to world class facilities and high quality coaching. Pool based training is throughout the week, and gym sessions are in strength and conditioning suit in the Pearson Building.
Because of our great partnerships and access to world-class facilities, Hallam Swimming is able to provide training for a range of different abilities.
The Hallam Squad is our main group which caters to our students who want to train to compete. Our competetive focus within the Hallam Squad is BUSL (British University Swim League), which we were crowned champions in 19/20. The group gets 5 hours of pool time per week plus 3 x S&C sessions provided by the professional coaches at Team Hallam. There are plenty of opportunities to pick up extra training in extra lane swims and also compete in competitions outside of the university. This is one of the ways in which our partnerships and access to great facilities allow our swimmers to make the most of their training and swimming potential.
Performance 1 & 2:
Hallam Swimming is run in partnership with City of Sheffield Swim Squad, this allows our swimmers to access professional performance programmes. These squads have a high performance focus aimed at BUCS, British Champs and Summer Nationals. With 18 hours of pool time per week, there is also additional sports science support including S&C, physio, nutrition and psychology. These groups have a selection process and requires swimmers to have 600 FINA points for Performance 2 and 800 FINA points for Performance 1.
Our recreational squad opens the door for swimmers who don't want to attend coahced sessions or compete but however still want to be part of our brilliant team atmosphere. Swimmers in this group can attend lane swims at a pools of their choice and on a membership which suits their needs. Despite swimmers in this group not attending the coached sessions, the group will be part of the Hallam Swimming community allowing them to attend our weekly socials.
At Hallam Swimming we compete in a range of different competitions and meets across all squads. As well as attending regional galas, Hallam Swimming is a top 5 ranked team in BUCS both LC and SC. In addition to this we are in BUSL (British University Swim League).
