The Northumberland Hub has been established through the Northumberland Club Network to provide additional training opportunities for swimmers and coaches within Northumberland. It is hoped that through the hub and by training with different swimmers and coaches, the athletes will further develop their skills and level of performance. This approach is similar to that of the ASA award winning Northumberland and Durham Beacon programme which has been a great success within the region.
The Northumberland hub contains swimmers from Ashington, Morpeth, Tynedale, Blyth and Alnwick swimming clubs and sessions take place across the pools in Northumberland and at the Aquatic Centre in Sunderland.
This season, those swimmers selected onto the hub programme can purchase hub clothing from our online shop, the link to which can be found here: Northumberland Hub Shop. Each swimmer selected onto the hub programme will receive a FREE hub hat and additional hats can be purchased for £6 from the hub coaches at hub training sessions.
