Kingfishers Swimming club will be 40 years old in 2019, a registered charity solely run by a volunteer workforce of over 35 regular staff members, accredited to Swim England and with Swim Mark accreditation.
We are requesting financial support to help Kingfishers provide more aquatic opportunities to members both children and adults in the Scarborough area. Being a coastal town with the sea on our doorstep making sure that as many local children are good strong swimmers is vitally important. We would very much like to grow our membership, upskill our volunteer teaching and coaching team and provide events and equipment to maximise the potential they have. We are a fully inclusive club working with beginners, regional medallists, open water swimmers and triathletes competing at a national level alongside kids with hidden disabilities and adults who are returning to swimming to improve their fitness levels.

Moment of Pride

The Club provides teaching for children and adults about swimming and water safety. Many members have made life long friends and with the family atmosphere generated within the club helped grow their self-confidence and motivate them to be the best vision of themselves.
