Swin Flintshire is an Elite Swimming Performance Squad funded by a partnership between Flintshire CC, Swim Wales and the parents of swimmers. All parties contribute towards the modest running
costs of the squad.
We are also helped by generous sponsers such a Sam Morris from Develop-U, a Yorkshire based training company, see their website at www.develop-u.co.uk.
Swim Flintshire are coached by a level three first rate coach, Stewart Clamp, who has trained the likes of Tom Allen and Lucy Worrel.
