About COSSS

Ponds ForgePonds ForgeWe are South Yorkshire’s premier competitive swimming club and train at the prestigious Ponds Forge International Sports Centre in Sheffield, which accommodates both 25m and 50m training facilities. Within our squads we have International swimmers, National Age/Youth winners and finalists, and we compete at County, District and National levels, including various open meets through-out the year. We are a British Swimming select club and are regularly ranked in the top 10 clubs in Great Britain.  Our aim is to place swimmers on the podium at all domestic and International level meets.

SwimMark is Swim England's club development model, enabling clubs to help swimmers, coaches and administrators achieve their full potential. It is centered around the needs of the swimmer, and strives to provide them with the best possible training environment. It is regarded as the backbone of the Swim England's development programme. The SwimMark scheme also provides a “kite marking” process for swimming clubs to be graded by. When awarded, it shows that absolute best practice in swimming provision is being used.
