Bolton Metro Swimming Squad (BMSS) was founded nearly twenty years ago and is a self funded Performance Swimming Squad for Bolton and the surrounding community. Affiliation to the to the previous ASA (Swim England) via the then Northern Counties was achieved with the support of the local swimming clubs and agreement was negotiated that swimmers compete for Bolton Metro at County, Regional and National level but still keep swimming for the clubs at local level.
BMSS have strong relationships with the local authority, Serco and local Clubs and have attained the Swim England Mark Essential year on year; the Swim England's 'quality mark'.
BMSS is proud of its achievements and in its development of young athletes who have successfully represented themselves and Bolton at County, District and National levels. Alongside this, BMSS has developed swimmers who have attained the very highest standards, having represented our Country at Commonwealth, Paralympics and Olympic games.
BMSS are also keen to foster swimmers with disabilities and we have experienced coaches with disability expertise. We are naturally proud of our past achievements and look to the future as we are constantly striving to move forward, working towards excellence
