Guernsey Marlins Special Swimmers Club LBG was started in 2010, and is a swimming club for children and adults with a Learning Disability. To be eligible to join the Club, the new swimmer must have attended a special needs school for the learning disabled.
The Club aims to train the swimmers to compete on and off island, currently in Jersey and the U.K. The Club meets every Wednesday during term time at the Baubigny Schools’ pool. It is totally run by Volunteers. We do not charge for lessons, they only have to pay for the annual insurance through Swim England.
Our Club is a very friendly and supportive place for both children and adults to enjoy a sport that they are able to do.
Our swimmers’ abilities vary from being able to get from one end of the pool to the other doing their own style of stroke, to swimming with a very good stroke that is equal to able swimmers.
For more information, please contact Graham Elwin, Chairman, or Jean Elwin, Club Secretary.
