Welcome to Ashton Central Amateur Swimming Club. The aim of this handbook in conjunction with the club website, www.ashtoncentral.co.uk, is to provide members with information regarding the clubs activities and for the participation in the sport of swimming.
Ashton Central Swimming Club came into being in 1978 and is entirely run by volunteers. It was set up for the swimming enthusiasts in Ashton to allow swimmers to develop, and to swim under their town’s banner.
Over the years the club and its reputation have grown and we now have swimmers from both the Wigan and St. Helens boroughs. We train at two pools, our home base is at Ashton Leisure Centre, adjoining Cansfield High School, and our second pool is at Selwyn Jones Leisure Centre in Newton-le-Willows.
The main aim of the club is to teach swimming within a safe and secure environment, to teach swimming, enabling members to reach their full potential, and allow swimmers to compete at the highest level.
