We take part in both short and long course BUCS competitions held at Ponds Forge in Sheffield where swimmers have the chance to represent Team Derby. 
We also compete in the British University Swimming League; a friendly league with three events throughout the year - this comes without the pressure of a big competition so is great for development swimmers to get a taste of the action alonside those going for points! We will be traveling to Lincoln University, Nottingham Trent and Nottingham University to participate in these friendly competitions.



These are what build the foundations of the team. Training can sometimes be action packed with little time to chill and really get to know your team mates, so BRING ON THE SOCIALS!
