About us

As a swimming club, we aim to:

  • Develop safe, effective and child friendly environments, based on good practice

  • Improve swimmers, teachers, coaches and volunteers

  • Encourage lifelong participation through sustainable swimming development pathways

Brechin Beavers Swimming Club has been in existence since 1976 and is one of the oldest established swimming clubs in Angus

We achieved SwimMark accreditation in 2016 and SwimMarkPlus in 2019. We are a friendly competitive club that is growing quickly under the leadership of our Head Coaches.

The Club is run on a totally voluntary basis and relies on the time generously offered by volunteers. We are a teaching /competitive club and participate in a range of competitions, from friendly local galas to Midlands League.

The club currently runs its Learn to Swim programme on Wednesday evenings. Our Learn to Train and Train to Train programmes run on a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

Our coaches and committee members (and helpers over 16 years) are members of the PVG Scheme and our coaches are qualified to Level 1 and Level 2. The Club is fully insured for swim training activities.

Our aim is to achieve the best for our swimmers, help them build on their confidence and capabilities. They will eventually represent the club at competitions, which is certainly an honour!

We believe children should be rewarded for their efforts and host various social events for their enjoyment, such as trips to Christmas pantomimes and we also hold an annual awards ceremony, which the children enjoy.

Get Involved

We are always on the lookout for extra help. Whether you can spare an hour a week or an hour a day, your time will really make a difference.

There are many different roles to suit your skills, from teaching, coaching or officiating to designing the website, fundraising or ordering kit for the club.

Fund Raising


Coaching, Teachers and pool side helpers

With the club running sessions 4 nights a week we are always on the look out for teachers/coaches and poolside helpers. Many of our coaches/teachers start out as poolside helpers and it is not a prerequisite to be a good swimmer. Many of our past coaches have in fact been none swimmers. There are teaching and coaching courses run by Scottish Swimming which are paid for by the club

Officiating

The club requires time keepers and judges to allow them to attend swimming gala's. These are voluntary roles which are very rewarding and allow you to be on poolside whilst your child is competing. Full training is giving by attending a Scottish Swimming course which can be mostly do online. The club pays for all course.
