Welcome to the new Somerset ASA website, covering aquatics in the County of Somerset, located in South West England. Somerset ASA is affiliated to Swim England South West Region.

As well as holding a Continual Development Pathway for 11-year-olds, conducted by lead coaches and Talent Pathway Coaches in swimming, they also boost water polo teams at all levels, and also an Artistic Swimming Section supported by the two artistic clubs in the county, Team Bath and Taunton Artistic Swimming Club.

The Swimming Committee lead on both the County Swimming Championships and a Development Meet to enable their swimmers to enter the very top level of swimming events.

Somerset are also one of the top competitors in the Swim England County Team Championships held in Sheffield’s Ponds Forge Pool.

Following the sudden death of our webmaster, John Bolton, and despite numerous attempts to recover the old Somerset Website, we have had to rebuild the site, using a lot of his original material.
