About us

Jersey Swimming Club has an unrivalled history within Island swimming and a special place within the local community, built around traditional family values whilst affording modern day aims and ambitions.


The Club is currently investing a significant amount of time and resource building for the future. Improving the services and opportunities it offers, which includes building on an already full program from Parent and Baby/Toddler and Learn-to-Swim, onwards and upwards to senior swimmers with National aspirations and Masters with renewed ambition!


Our philosophy is to create opportunity and to encourage every swimmer to be the very best they can, within a friendly environment.


We offer a safe, structured swimming and social environment for all ages. For those who take a competitive route there are opportunities to travel, starting with Guernsey at nine and Southampton at tenthen with locations such as Spain, France, Crete and Island Games locations for those who make the team.


Based at Langford, St Helier - Jersey’s newest 25 Metre pool with modern state of the art facilities, we also extend our facilities to meet demands of those who live in other areas by offering sessions at Aquasplash and Les Quennevais pools.


We have a whole host of Coaches and Teachers with varying Swimming teaching, coaching and life saving qualifications and experience. Supported by an administration team who deal with all Learn to Swim paperwork, competition entries, and all the day to day routine elements that help the whole club operate smoothly. 


But... The best way to find out more about what we do and how we can help you is to pop in and see us. Our full schedule can be found on the JSC Schedule page.


And if you want to know who to look for when you get there ... Mug shots below!

Carole Penfold MBE

President. Jersey Swimming Club


Qualified ASA Referee

Qualified First Aider

Carole joined Jersey Swimming Club in the 1970s when her two daughters, Tina and Julie, became members. They went on to join the Competitive Squad and both enjoyed trips away as members of the team. Julie became an Island Champ in 1979 when she won 4 out of 5 of the available events.  Carole was Vice President in 1986 but took a break from membership when her daughters stopped swimming. She later returned as Club Administrator and Licensee for the Pool View Cafe at Fort Regent, a very strong social venue for the club at that time. Since then she has seen the club move to the Aquasplash and to Langford and has been involved in the growth of available lessons from Parents & Babes/Toddlers, Learn to Swim, Development and Competitive Squads, Swim for Sport, and Masters. Becoming Hon. President in 2009. Carole maintains that the growth of the Club is down to the excellent team of coaches and teachers who are all dedicated to the sport and says "Having been founded in 1865 it is the duty of all members to pass the thriving club on to the next generation." Her words are so true - this is such a precious and worthy club that blends communities and offers opportunity to all.
