The mission of Thorne Tigers SC is a simple but important one, which is to provided high quality coaching in the sport of swimming to all members of the local community, no matter their background. We pride ourselves on our high quality coaching and the warm, welcoming environment which we provide to all.
Our club is a completely voluntary run organisation. All of our coaches, helpers and committee members give their time up for free to help the club and support our swimmers, without them there would be no club. They all do a fantastic job and are always trying to provided the best coaching possible to our swimmers.
Apart from the club's own club championships which we run every year during the summer. The club also takes part in a number of external competitions throughout the year and is happy to support any swimmer which wishes to compete in any other gala. Despite this no swimmer is forced to compete in competitions and it is completely up to the swimmer to choose if they wish to compete or not.
As a club we work closely with and are a feeder club to Doncaster Dartes who are the towns Elite Swimming Training Scheme. It is traditionally one of the top 4 squads in Yorkshire and provides high performance training at the highest level of British swimming.
As a swimmer if you wish to move on to this higher level of competition then Thorne Tigers as a club will fully support you but to join Dartes you must first be a member of a feeder club, like Thorne Tigers.
