About Us

We inspire and support people of all ages and abilities to learn how to swim, keep fit and in some cases live their dreams.

Kingsbury Aquarius swimming club was started in 1974 and are a not-for-profit organisation run by coaches and volunteers. We bring individuals and families together to coach, support and motivate each other to improve swimming skills and share social skills. We provide a programme and a platform that allows our members to progress from beginners to national champions and coaches should they wish to.

Kingsbury Aquarius is a community swimming club in North Warwickshire and North Solihull. We offer learn to swim all the way to competitive squads. The club structure reflects our various competitive ambitions with squads run by our dedicated team of coaches.  

The Kingsbury Aquarius Learn to Swim section caters for all stages of the National Plan for Teaching Swimming by Swim England. This is delivered by our qualified teachers and supported by our older club members who are qualified Aquatic helpers and teachers. 

Our Purpose

Kingsbury Aquarius SC is committed to helping all swimmers to achieve their maximum potential and to enjoy participating in aquatic sports. This will be achieved with the aid of high-quality coaching, teaching and support staff, working in partnership with the club officials, parents and most importantly, the swimmers.
