Fun is our number one priority. Not only the fun in sport is important to us, but also the fun in the community and the friendships that develop during training.
We organise numerous social activities outside of our training. Two very special highlights are the annual camps in Recke and Mentrup Hagen. These camps are a great opportunity for the children to get to know each other better and to experience many adventures together as a group. Additional activities such as the Easter rally, biscuit baking, the barbecue or an excursion to the Kettlerhof round off the life of the club.
We want all our members and their families to feel welcome. It is important to us that the children develop a sense of community and make new experiences together as a team.
Every athlete has goals, may they be big or small, far away or almost achieved. We attach great importance to fun in sport and team life, which does not mean that we focus less strongly on competitive sport.
We are always happy when children are keen to try out swimming at competitions. Promoting sport and supporting young athletes in their dreams is always a great pleasure for us.
Those who do not want to go directly towards competitions can also earn all swimming badges with us and thus develop in their own way.
There are many hobbies, but rarely in a club as diverse as the swimming club. We are proud to be able to count swimming beginners as young as 5 years old among our members, as well as 80-year-olds who have never lost their love for the club.
Certain basic values, e.g. solidarity, community, tolerance, understanding and shared responsibility, are very important to us. We try to exemplify these values to the children during training and spare time activities.
Our members are the most important thing in our club. Without our children, youth, adults and seniors, we would not be the group we are today. Our club grows together with its members and develops through them.
We thrive on the collective development, creativity and support of our members and their families. It is important for us that members can help shape and contribute.
There are many ways to get involved. We support our members to become referees, coaches or training supervisors. We encourage young people to get involved creatively and perhaps take on a role on the youth committee, representing children on the board to present their perspective.
