Derwent Valley Amateur Swimming Club 
 
 

Derwent Valley Amateur Swimming Club was founded in 1961, with the aim to teach children to swim, to instruct them to become proficient in the four main strokes and to foster life-saving. We aim to give children a life-long enjoyment of the sport and to understand the need for water. 
 
 
The Club, which is based at Derwent Swimming Pool in Norton, is affiliated to the Amateur Swimming Association and currently follows the ‘Learn to Swim’ scheme. 
 
From its origins, the Club’s administrators, officials and instructors have all been volunteers and throughout its fifty-four year history it has taught several generations and thousands of children to swim to very high standards. 
 
 
We currently have over 150 members, ranging in age from 6 to 76 and over the years, have successfully coached many successful swimmers, competing at League, County and National level.
