I started learning to swim when I was five years old at Atlantis Swimming School. I started swimming lessons with school at my local pool. At one session, a City of Leeds Swimming Club coach attended and observed everyone. I was invited to a trial for a place in the Stage 8 Group, was accepted and I began training 3 times a week on evenings and competed in short races at Development Galas every now and again.

Defending champion Leah Schlosshan set a new European Junior Swimming Championships record as Great Britain’s youngsters impressed on the international stage.
The City of Leeds swimmer’s gold medal winning performance in the Women’s 200m Individual Medley was the highlight of the European Junior Swimming Championships for the British team in Belgrade.
Schlosshan clocked 2:12.41 on the final day of the event in Belgrade to top the podium ahead of her compatriot Phoebe Cooper, who finished second in 2:13.28.
“I am really happy I was able to defend my title from last year,” said Schlosshan. “It’s just a tiny bit off my best time, but I’m happy with the swim.
“This result show that my trainings are consistent. The Olympics is in the next year, so I will continue my trainings, I will see what I able to do next year.”

Following parent feedback and recent supply chain issues with the old kit, the club have made the decision to part ways with Kukri. The price increases in addition to length of time to procure the material has sadly made the old kit unviable.
The committee has been working hard behind the scenes to secure a new supplier who will provide a full kit for our swimmers as well as coaches, and we are pleased to announce that we have partnered with KitLocker. The new kit will all be Nike and can be bought directly through the dedicated COLSC online shop where all purchases will be sent directly to you. Please follow this link:
