Welcome! Aston Bears!

We are all looking forward to an exciting new year ahead with plenty of amazing socials lined up for our 2020-2021 squads.  We provide a variety of opportunities to take part through swimming, waterpolo or socially and can’t wait to see some of you guys over the coming year. We are working with Swim England the Student Union and other Non-Government Bodies to try and make Swimming and Waterpolo as normal as possible this year. 

Keep your eyes peeled for information regarding our taster session sign-ups. Plus feel free to stop any current squad members around campus to get their opinion on the club. 

Here's to another great season!

Competition

Our Swim Team competes twice a year in the BUCS league, in First Term we swim in the Short-Course BUCS Championships (CANCELLED for 2020) and in Second Term we compete in the Long-Course BUCS Championships. These take place over a weekend so we get to have a few nights away and some great socials while there too! This year we are also taking part in the newly formed National University Development League (NUDL) which runs more local and regular swimming galas!

Our waterpolo teams have a variety of games with local universities and welcome all abilities from complete beginner to seasoned veteran. If you want even more waterpolo then why not look at playing with our affiliate club "Aston Men's" who have training on Thursday evenings. 

We will also offer you the chance to buy new kit in the coming year.
