Ellesmere College Titans

The Titans were established in 2008, as a meeting of minds, between Ellesmere College - a school with a great sporting heritage - and the parents of some of the top young swimmers in the North West and West Midlands, united in their desire to create an ambitious, positive and competitive swimming programme.

The structure of the academic day and training has been designed and adapted to support your child's chosen sport. Titans are fortunate to have two international coaches and excellent mentoring system, which allows our swimmers to receive the best possible advice.

Our swimmers have the most advanced training methods, video analysis, sports science, goal setting and life style management available to them on a daily basis. The Titans and College aim is to give the swimmers every possibility to achieve at the highest level both in the pool and academically.

The result so far:

  • A centre of swimming excellence in the heart of the North Shropshire countryside.
  • A club where winning and competing at the highest level is the benchmark for success.
  • A belief that if it is possible, we can achieve it.
  • A club in which the Coaches know each and every swimmer and care passionately about their success.
  • A positive and enthusiastic culture, which is contagious to all who come into contact.

Coaching & Training

We offer 20+ hours training, using our 25m and 25 yard pool and gymnasium, having a specific club structure in place to progress young talented children through the pathway aged 8-18 years. Due to our elite ethos and low numbers in each group it means we can tailor each individuals training needs to suit. The coaching team at Titans has a wealth of experience and are committed to the pathway to excellence in our sport.

Technique:

We have a huge tradition in skill and skill development, aiming to develop the technique and skills of our swimmers at an early age on all four strokes to give each individual the best opportunity within the sport.

The training program at titans includes a variety of training and racing needs. Including stroke efficiency, stroke rate, pace control, video analysis in the training and racing environment.

Strength & Conditioning:

Titans land training is designed for each age group from 8-18 years and also in line with the swimmers biological development. Early ages we design the program as co-ordination and movement patterns all the way through to our eldest swimmers who have individual programs set out by our strength and conditioning coach.

Progressive land training and flexibility training also ensure that swimmers remain injury free, which allows them to be able to sustain progress during heavy training periods in the pool.
