Our Ethos

Colchester Phoenix ASC is a swimming club for people with a wide range of disabilities and swimming ability.
We cater for those just starting their swimming journey in our teaching section at 5pm on a Saturday where children can learn to swim in small groups often with additional support in the water. The children have the opportunity to work towards distance badges as well developing their strokes. Their social skills and confidence often improve during their time swimming with us.
As the swimmers progress and become older they can continue their swimming for fun and fitness in the 6pm Saturday session or go through to training with our competitive squad.
Our competitive squad have the opportunity to train for up to 4 hours a week, they work on their stamina and technique as well as their speed. Our squad compete in a variety of competitions and go to able bodied as well as disability galas.
Phoenix motto is “Ability not disability” whatever your age, disability or swimming ability we want you to enjoy swimming with us.
Why not come and give us a try your first trial swim is completely free. To quote the 2016 Paralympian moto “Yes I can, Yes I can , Yes I can.
