Out to Swim offers a wide range of swimming sessions to suit all abilities, all led by experienced coaches and teachers. New swimmers are assessed by one of our coaches and allocated to one of the following groups, according to swimming ability and development needs: lessons, development, or one of the four club groups.
Streaming swimmers in this way enables us to:
provide a framework for personal development;
direct swimmers to the most appropriate session;
make the best use of limited pool time;
maximise the benefit that swimmers get from the sessions; and

The club divides its sessions into lanes 1-7 dependent on speed. Swimmers are allocated a lane at assessment and are expected to follow coaches’ instruction at training.
Some of OTS top swimmers started their time in the club in lessons. Many find that the group they feel comfortable with changes as their fitness varies. The coaches will let you know when they feel it’s better for you to try a different group. It's not about pride, it's about creating the best environment for you so even if you are asked to rejoin a previous group it's not forever and the decision is focused with your interests in mind.
Creating a great environment isn't just the coach's job. Each and every member shares this responsibility, check out our guide to Lane Etiquette and make sure you're on the same page with our Glossary of Swimming Terms.
At this point you'd be forgiven for thinking OTS are a focused bunch who only have time for swimming, well not quite - we host a wide range of socials all throughout the year that are open to everyone!
