Middlesbrough Amateur Swimming Club
(Founded in 1886)

MASC has always been regarded as one of the top clubs in the Northumberland and Durham District and has produced some fantastic swimmers from Jack Hatfield to the London 2012 & Rio 2016 Olympic Swimmer & Commonwealth Gold Medallist 2018 Aimee Willmott.

The Club has had swimmers representing the County, the Region and at National and Internationals events. This illustrates the strength and depth we have in all aspects of the Club.

The Club has been able to produce elite athletes throughout the years, whilst maintaining the feel of a family club. This is something we believe is paramount for our swimmers' development as both a swimmer and an individual.

The teaching and coaching quality is the most important aspect for everybody involved at Middlesbrough ASC. All squad sessions are delivered by fully qualified staff who hold the ASA Level 2 Teaching or Coaching qualification or above.

The Coaching and Teaching programme is led by the Head Coach (Tom Harforth), the Assistant Head Coach (Joe Richards) and Lead Squad Coaches (Jim Mooney and Stuart Willmott).

Working within the coaching/teaching team we have a group of highly qualified and motivated volunteers, coaches and assistants. As a team we strive to assist with the success of the swimmers within the Club and follow the Club's coaching and teaching philosophy.

As Middlesbrough ASC goes from strength to strength we will continue to promote a professional and family orientated atmosphere which will ensure all swimmers are able to able to reach and maximise their potential.

Middlesbrough ASC aims to improve on its success and change people's lives in many different ways; educating and improving health, offering competitive opportunities and creating routine and structure in their lives.

Excellence will be inevitable if you're willing to buy in
