Derby Excel Swimming Club is based at Moorways Sports Village in Derby. We were formed in April 2023 from the merger of City of Derby Swimming Club and Derventio Excel Swim Squad, both long established clubs well known for producing outstanding swimmers including Adam Peaty, Molly Renshaw, Abbie Wood and Jacob Whittle.
We aim to develop our swimmers into competent, confident swimmers, being part of a team, making friends, and gaining confidence in the water in a welcoming supportive environment. Whatever your goals as a swimmer, we can help you achieve them.
We train swimmers of all ages and abilities. We provide high quality teaching and coaching right from when swimmers first join us (often from their local Learn to Swim programme), progressing through our squads as their swimming skills develop – learning the swimming strokes, how to dive and do tumble turns.
Our Performance squads bring together the best swimmers in Derbyshire to train together, striving to be right up there with the best, both nationally and internationally.
