Competitive Swimming in Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire

Affiliated to the Amateur Swimming Association


The club is focused on the development of swimmers from the age of 8 to 18 with a clear objective of reaching a competitive standard of an open gala through to County or Regional finals. 4SSC has a supportive committee, mainly the parents of the swimmers, who create a social friendly environment.


We ask for real commitment to training and in return offer the swimmers a great chance to develop their confidence and extend their opportunities.

4Shires Swimming Club vision is to provide swimmers with the optimum environment and the right opportunities at each stage of their development to enable them to achieve excellence….our programme is designed to encourage swimmers of all abilities to enter a competitive environment with enjoyment being the club ethos.

Our Vision


4Shires Swimming Club is based in Chipping Norton, with members of the club coming from across Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.


4SSC is based at the excellent Chipping Norton Leisure facilities in the heart of the town. We also use pools at the independent schools Sibford and Kingham Hill as well as holding sessions at Bourton on the Water Leisure Centre.


The club has an excellent coaching team who have the desire and enthusiasm to get the best out of the swimmers whatever their goals may be.

Who are we?

We offer a broad range of venues and times to suit many swimmers and structure our squads to ensure that we can cater for your individual needs.


We are a friendly club and try and make sure that the children enjoy their training and experience the thrill of competition as regularly as possible.

We train and develop young swimmers to fulfil their potential in the pool whether it is in competition at local or county level and beyond, or if it's simply to improve their fitness through this demanding yet enjoyable sport.


Our group of 3 main coaches have a wealth of experience and will initially assess your child and develop a programme for them to suit their needs and enable them to progress through the squads towards those all-important personal bests!
