The club is fully committed to the success of its swimmers and has a partnership with AJ Swim School to ensure young learners have the opportunity to reach their potential, whether that be a safe recreational swimmer or to advance to elite swimming at the highest level.
Like all community based sports clubs we cannot survive without our volunteers. Volunteering is a rewarding experience, benefiting both the clubs and the individual. It builds upon life skills, work skills, confidence and social aspects which are valued by volunteers in return for the time and dedication they commit.
In return we can offer training and support and personal development. We can give you references for further education and work and support you on your journey. Volunteers, of all ages, are the lifeblood of our swimming club. By choosing Carnoustie Claymores as your club, you can be assured that the club is committed to making your swimming or volunteering experience enjoyable and rewarding.
