Whichever squad a swimmer is more suited the coaches and the club will look to develop the individual and look to progress there development at their pace. To manage expectations, competitive swimming can become demanding on your time and requires commitment and a belief in ability. We just want to make you aware of this so there are no surprises. Swimming is an individual sport but is also a team sport. At Blackburn Centurions we look to nurture and develop our members and will support them to achieve this. We are one big friendly club with a real competitive will to win focus.
