Oldham Seals Swimming Club was established in 1910 with the primary aim of providing swimmers in the Borough of Oldham with the best training encouragement & motivation to bring out their natural ability and potential in order for them to be the best they can possibly be.

If you would like to join the club, please use the contact page and let us know the details of yourself and your child, where they currently swim and their swimming ability.

Children start at the club, usually between 6 to 8 years old, and we look for children to meet the Entry Criteria below

Entry criteria to be considered for a trial, the swimmer should be :

Able to swim 200 Metres, capable of swimming 2 to 3 different strokes (Freestyle, Breaststroke, Backstroke, Butterfly)

Able to tread water for 1 minute

Please note, the club is run by volunteers who give their time freely to support the club and the children.

Oldham Seals is a not for Profit organisation – all of the fees taken are used to run the club and provide activities for the children.
