About Us

BSS is the performance swimming squad in Bassetlaw, we work closely with community base clubs to enhance swimming in the district. 

We are the competition outlet for Barnsley Premier Leisure's Swim Train­ing Squad, in Bassetlaw. The Performance Squad ensures swimmers represent their local community club up to county championship level and train locally up to 10 times each week when striving for national and international success. And through the guid­ance and men­tor­ing of our experienced Swim England-qual­i­fied coach­es, swim­mers are encour­aged to attain their full poten­tial, and be the best that they can be.

We have links with the University of Lincoln as our closest Higher Education provider. We aim to be at the forefront of sport science to enhance performance.

BSS is supported by PhD Nutrition student and Sport and Exercise Nutrition Registered Nutritionist, Alex Brown. Alex has experience working with British Swimming Championship finalists, England Squash and elite Rugby Union teams as well as University Sports Teams.

We also have a dedicated Strength & Conditioning Coach, David Jakeman, developing the land work to enhance the physical aspects of the training programme.
