Middlesbrough ASC (MASC) is proud to offer a broad range of provision to suit a wide variety of swimmers. We welcome swimmers right at the start of their swimming journey via our Academy, through to ambitious competitive swimmers of all ages, at the very top of their game.

There is something to suit just about everyone. Interested? Read more about joining us.

At MASC we aim to offer an inclusive, flexible and enjoyable environment for everyone to enjoy their sport.

The squad structure is designed to be progressive, for swimmers to develop through various different pathways in line with the Long Term Athlete Development Plan. The structure also aims to offer flexibility as well as fitness pathways to ensure that our members have options throughout their journey – for example to support swimmers during exams, injury or long-term health issues.

Being part of the MASC family also give you access to great benefits including access to the fitness facilities at one of our home pools (Neptune Centre) and access to sports massage via one of our partners. This is all alongside some of the most generous pool/training times around, and great coaching.

All of our squads have individual squad criteria. More detailed squad training information and criteria can be found on each of the links at the top of this page.

Our squads are as follows:

Detailed squad selection criteria is in place to ensure that squad selections are not only fair on swimmers, but correct for the individual swimmers physiological and psychological development. Included within our criteria is a level of coaches discretion which ensures that coaches can apply their knowledge and experience to ensure any squad move is the right one for the individual swimmer, rather than it being a tick box exercise.
