The City of Manchester Aquatics Swim Team (COMAST) was originally formed in 2001 and has grown strength from to strength to more than 300 members.
We are a Swim England Performance Centre working in partnership with Arena Water Instinct, G.L.L and Manchester Metropolitan University.
Based at Manchester Aquatic Centre are the club’s Performance Squads, Development Squads, Masters Squad, Matt Walker Disability Academy and the COMAST Academy. At other centres around Manchester, we have more Academies, and our 2 satellite squads – Hough End and Raven Moss.
The COMAST high-performance swim team is recognised for its success placing swimmers on senior and international teams. We have recently been named the NW regional Performance Pathway working in partnership with Swim North West to offer training and support to selected swimmers across the region who share these goals.
The Club’s objectives are to:
- Deliver a coaching pathway to enable swimmers to reach their full potential and achieve their goals.
- Continue to improve progression routes from Learn to swim, school swimming, academies, and Manchester community base clubs into COMAST.
- Deliver competition framework from development to elite level.
- Further developing para swimming pathway from development through to performance level.
COMAST comprises of a number of squads, grouped by age and ability. Each squad has dedicated training sessions, and more information can be found on each squads own page.
