Saddleworth Amateur Swimming Club (SASC) is based at Uppermill Swimming Pool is at the heart of our community. The club was established more than 30 years ago with the aim of developing local swimmers, getting more swimmers in the water, building and engendering a life-long love of the sport.
The club is part of the elite athlete pathway where talented swimmers are identified and encouraged to develop their swimming as far as possible including; regional, national & international competition standards. Over the years we have had a number of Olympic and Commonwealth games athletes as members of the club; Jess Lloyd, who swam in the 2012 London Olympics and Ben Procter who swam in the 2012 London Paralympics being just two recent examples.
The club competes in local gala leagues and runs a number of internal competitions. Additionally we encourage our members to take part in open galas, triathlons & other swimming events.
The club was recently awarded the Swim21 national standard by Swim Mark demonstrating our commitment to being an effective, ethical & sustainable club.
