EUSC are a friendly, welcoming club with a positive presence on campus. We are committed to providing a professional, fun and enriching environment to all of our members. We offer coaching for all levels of swimming and enjoy a strong presence at BUCS competitions. We maintain a strong working relationship with the Athletic Union; who oversee the development of sport at the university, and also with the local Swimming Club – Exeter City. Our goal at EUSC is to provide each of our members with the opportunity to diversify their time at University outside of their studies and enjoy the experiences that being part of a University sports team has to offer.
We offer 8 training sessions a week in terms 1&2: including a land based circuits session, a session for those looking to improve their technique, and a session focusing on competing per week. For 1 session a week our specialist coach is present to provide feedback on technique and there will be an opportunity for some underwater video analysis. This year we have more coached hours then ever before, with 8 hours a week being coached. Our social secs organise weekly socials giving all members the opportunity to get to know each other outside of the pool. All of this for just £110 (all three terms included) and that’s it!
For those looking to compete, we enter 3 major competitions a year; BUCS short course, BUCS Long Course and BUCS Team Championships. We also have an annual training camp in Cardiff in the run up to BUCS long course in January.
Everyone part of the club has the chance to represent us in a competition. Either internationally, with a trip to Germany or closer to home, in our annual charity varsity against local universities. Last year our varisty event raised £1,161 for Teenage Cancer Trust.
“I love the swimming club, I’ve had some of the best times at university with them and it’ll
