Young Leader Profile – 'Why I Swim' by Robyn

Posted on 2 March 2024

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.

Posted on 11 July 2023

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.”

New Club Kit Now Available

Posted on 23 October 2022

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:
