Welcome to Linslade Crusaders

Here at Linslade Crusaders we are proud to boast an unrivalled record locally for developing swimmers from their first ventures in the water, right up to being national qualifiers and finalists. With a reputation for friendliness, our club fosters a healthy competitive spirit - combined with great team-work and more than a dash of fun.


Thanks to a partnership forged with our link club City of Milton Keynes via Swim 21, we offer a comprehensive route for swimmers of all abilities.
At Crusaders we believe that swimming opens up many opportunities for people of all ages. We teach children to swim from the age of five and continue their development up to and beyond University age. Through our renowned Learn to Swim scheme, parents can feel confident that their children have learnt a valuable life-skill. The confidence of feeling safe in the water and the new skills learnt will equip children for many other aquatic sports.


Our aim is to give opportunities to those children who are keen to be part of the world of competitive swimming. Just like their international idols in the sport, swimmers can learn to train well to help them succeed in the pool. Swimmers can be confident that they are part of the best scheme in the area. Crusaders have a long tradition of outstanding competitive successes Swimmers compete throughout the year in many friendly invitational galas winning more than their fair share! Swimmers also compete in many Open Meets throughout the year winning many medals and gaining qualification times for major championships.


Education is important to us, so we can ensure our swimmers receive the highest standards of teaching and coaching. Our dedicated teachers and coaches are qualified to the standards required by the amateur swimming association (ASA) and work under the guidance of our head coach Adrian Smith - holder of the UKCC Senior Coach qualification. Through a structured squad system in line with the principles of the Long-Term Athlete Development programme, swimmers will improve on all their technical skills while developing speed and endurance.
