Surrey to Host Swim England Performance Centre
Team Surrey are delighted to announce that the University of Surrey and Guildford City Swimming Club have been selected as a Performance Centre for Swim England.
Based at Surrey Sports Park, the Swim England Performance Centre will give talented young swimmers the opportunity to stay in sport while continuing their education.
Mark Garfoot, Head of Student Sport at The University of Surrey, spoke to us about the brand new partnership.
"I am extremely excited by the new and ambitious partnership with Swim England.
"Our swimming programme has gone from strength to strength in recent years, culminating in being ranked the 4th best university swimming team in England. This new opportunity will enable us to progress even further across all levels of our programme.
Guildford City have produced some exceptional athletes, and we look forward to enabling them to continue to develop. The Performance Centre gives young swimmers the opportunity to benefit from our first class facilities, whilst also gaining a first class education."
As one of just five areas to be selected to host a Swim England Performance Centre, the partnership highlights the strength of our programme across the nation.
With the additional funding, coaching and technical advice provided by Swim England we are extremely hopeful to continue the exceptional performance of our student swimmers in recent years.
