Potters Bar Synchronised Swimming Club was founded in 1978 by Colin Lushington at the Potters Bar Pool - now Furzefield Leisure Centre. Training was on Saturdays from 12 noon to 1pm, Annual Membership was £5.00 and the weekly fee was just 35p.
Although things have changed quite a bit since then, we still aim to offer a safe and fun environment for our swimmers. In the past the Club has employed a Chief Coach but at present is being run by a Coaching Committee. Coaches are trained on poolside by existing coaches and then attend a course to gain a recognised qualification if they so wish. Many of the senior girls will also help with juniors during sessions and also turn to coaching when they finish their swimming career.
