Hello and welcome to Leeds Met Carnegie Swimming Team!
We are happy that you have chosen to pursue your swimming at Leeds Met and we guarantee that you won't regret it! Although we take our training and competitions seriously, we would like to consider ourselves an extremely sociable team so even if you consider yourself not to be the fastest or the fittest, you will still settle in with everyone and have a brilliant year.
Our club is currently in division 1 of the BUCS team championship league which consists of 8 of the top university teams in the northern region of the university swimming.
We train in the Leeds Met swimming pool on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7 - 8.30 pm and also on a Sunday from 4 - 6pm we also have use of the facilities such as the gym and fitness classes so that if you wish, you can push yourself that little bit further. All our sessions are structured towards our four main competitions of the year.
First off, is the highly competitive Varsity where we compete against our main rivals, Leeds Uni in order to gain the title of Varsity Champions. This is a nice introduction to our main competition of the year, BUCS which is held at Ponds Forge International swimming pool in November and February. Not only is this a perfect way to start the academic year but it promises to be a good social event too with all the Universities taking part.
On behalf of the team, we would like to welcome you again and look forward to seeing you in the pool!
