Fareham Nomads Swimming Club
Fareham Nomads Swimming Club (FNSC) was formed in 1974 before there was a public swimming pool in Fareham. Due to the lack of a home pool the Club took its name because in the early days it led a ‘nomadic’ existence, using various pools throughout the area for training until 1980 when Fareham Leisure Centre was opened.
Since then, the Club has grown considerably and today has a membership of around 250 children and young adults.
Our Mission is:
* To ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn to swim.
* To ensure that every member can achieve their personal goal within the sport.
* To ensure that every member has the opportunity to compete.
To achieve these aims, the Club has four professional coaches to supervise our competitive squads and our Learn to Swim programme. They are supported by a number of volunteer coaches and teachers qualified to national standards. Under their guidance and direction, the Club’s swimmers are able to compete successfully in many competitions in the ASA Southern Region including leagues, galas and open meets, together with additional non-league and novice galas to provide competitive opportunities across all levels of ability. Our swimmers have also competed at county, regional, national and international levels with notable success. We cater for a wide range of age groups from our Learn to Swim programme through to our Masters Squad.
The Club is accredited to Swim 21 which means it has reached the tough standards laid down by the National Governing Body (the ASA) for swimming clubs. Currently the Club holds two levels of accreditation, teaching and skills development.
We are also a recognised Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) which has been achieved because the Club is open to the whole local community without any discrimination.
