The Masters squad is the pinnacle of swimming achievement, a place where wisdom, fitness and above all guile are blended to create perfect athletes. It's for competitive swimmers of 18 years old and over; goals in this squad could include training for pool-swimming competitions, triathlons, and open-water racing. 

Training is structured in the form of a set program specifically written for the Masters group. Sessions focus on developing physical conditioning and technical skills for competition swimming, and all four strokes are used.

Competition expectation

CCSC is a competitive swimming club, and our Masters swimmers include county and regional champions, and national open-water medal winners. To retain their squad place, as a minimum it’s expected that Masters will enter the club’s winter and summer championships, plus the annual Sussex County Short Course championships.


Masters sessions utilise a variety of equipment, including:

  • fins 
  • hand paddles
  • kickboards
  • snorkels
