What We Do

Torfaen Dolphins is one of only 7 performance clubs in Wales and the only one in the Torfaen area. Our Swimming Club caters for a huge range of ages and abilities within our programmes, so if you are a Club Swimmer who wants to reach their full potential, or become a future Commonwealth Games representative, we are able to help every swimmer to achieve their goals.

Our family friendly club provides its members with the opportunity to swim – from Wave 7 learning with our partners Torfaen Leisure Trust, up to national, international and masters level. Taster sessions are available, please see our Like to Join page.

Swimmers begin in the Academy Squad, where basic skills are developed. Progressing to the Development Squad programme to enhance techniques and competition skills. We then have 3 Performance Squads which have produced age group swimmers at the very highest levels of elite swimming. To compliment our main stream squads, we have The Spartans, which is our para section and Torfaen Tri Club. Both are producing results at the very highest level.

 

The programme is led by Head Coach Ian Rosser, who was himself a Team Wales Commonwealth Swimmer. Ian is assisted by lead coaches Brett Nowell, Sean Thackray and Sarah Croke. These lead coaches are assisted by a team of high quality coaches, many of whom are former Welsh International swimmers themselves. To learn more about our coaching team please click here.

If you would like to get involved as a volunteer coach, help with organisation behind the scenes, or support our swimmers via your business, then please contact us at [email protected] or via our Facebook and Twitter pages.
