Inspired by the Olympics? Now it's up to you!
The Olympic Games have given us a spectacular display by the world's best atheletes in their respective disciplines. Team GB did not just exceed expectations,
but smashed them, and in doing so a number of previously little-known athletes have now become household names overnight.
This was Britains best medal haul since 1908, with 65 medals in total, including 29 golds. That is 18 more medals than won in Beijing four years ago.
Although it was felt the British Swimming team underperformed winning 1 silver (Michael Jamieson - 200m breastroke) and 2 bronze medals (Rebecca Adlington - 400m and 800m freestyle)
this was against very tough opposition. Originally, UK Sport's target was between five and seven podium finishes.
The Olympic and Paralympic Games are the biggest sporting event in the world. We want to use the Games to inspire more young people to get
involved in sport, and specifically swimming. Just maybe with some raw talent, total commitment and determination as well as top coaching;
you too could be a name of the future in years to come! So if you are an existing club member maybe it is time to give it that extra push
OR if you are interested in joining an up and coming swimming club to try to reach your ambition maybe it is
time to get in touch with us.
White Oak Swimming Club
was founded in 1967. It is one of the top clubs in the area and caters
for swimmers of all ages and abilities. We have a well-qualified,
dedicated and enthusiastic coaching team and train at White Oak Leisure Centre, Hilda May Avenue, Swanley, Kent, BR8 7BT.
We have several squads to suit swimmers needs and
we successfully compete in all levels of Galas.
Club nights are every
Wednesday evening. This is where committee members and helpers are on hand to meet
parents and answer any questions. There is also a club shop every
Wednesday selling swimming hats, T bags and other items.
We run the
Badge Scheme for competitive swimmers where badges can be achieved for
swimming distances in certain times .
We have four Club Championships each year, monthly time trials and many
Galas with other clubs.
