My girls have been members of Sandbach Sharks since October. They love it and the coaches are fab. Very friendly club - would definitely recommend you join even if you don't want to compete!

Swimmer

It's a friendly and competitive club. The coaches are really supportive and I enjoy representing Sandbach Sharks, along with my team mates, at galas.

Parent

My daughter has now progressed to the Gold squad, and competes in the various galas held over the year. The club isn't all about winning but being the best you can be, and acheiving personal goals. Can't recommend the club highly enough.

I have been at sharks now for just over 3 years and it has been an amazing experience for me. Sharks has not only helped me to become a competitive swimmer, it has also helped me make new friends who enjoy the same things I do. Even if you don’t want to compete I recommend joining for fitness and to have fun with the new friends that you meet.

Sandbach Sharks is a great swim club. I've just started to compete in gala's and love being part of the Sandbach Sharks team and trying to win my races!!

Parent

Thoroughly recommend both the Sandbach Sharkies lessons and the Sandbach Sharks training sessions. My son has come on so much and actually enjoys missing the Xbox for it.
