Oxford University Swimming Club (OUSC) is made up of two teams, the Blues and the Seconds. Both teams train to compete in the annual Varsity match at the end of Hilary term, as well as the national BUCS competitions. A number of our swimmers compete to the highest levels of the sport, making BUCS and national championship finals. The club also has a vibrant social scene with weekly events, ensuring that everyone feels welcome.
The Blues team trains eight times a week and a high level of commitment is expected. Swimming is one of the few sports with a Full Blue status, and our members train hard in order to achieve this. Members of the Blues squad have usually swum competitively before university, but it is not uncommon for them to have had a break from the sport before joining OUSC.
The Seconds team is a perfect option for more casual swimmers and they train three times a week. All members of the Seconds team should be competent swimmers, but a range of abilities are warmly welcomed.
We’d love to hear from you, get in touch!
