The forerunner of the “Warriors” was a professionally coached training scheme administered by the Warrington Borough Council Baths Department. This was known as the “Warriors Swim Squad”. In 1972, the Baths Department decided to close this scheme down. A group of parents and coaches agreed to take it over and, in July 1972 at a meeting in Parr Hall the first constitution was adopted, Officers were elected and the Warriors of Warrington Swimming Club was born.
The Club philosophy is encompassed by the words COURAGE and PERSEVERANCE. Courage is the willingness to accept risk (s) and endure failings. Courage does not exist unless there is a situation that presents the opportunity for success. We encourage our athletes to embrace these opportunities and not to fear the outcome.
Perseverance is the backbone of success in any endeavour of life. One cannot succeed at the highest levels without enduring some setbacks. These difficult times can create a lack of faith, low self esteem, and an obvious drop in enthusiasm. Perseverance is the quality that transcends these difficult times. It allows the individual to find true strength of their character.
Warrington Warriors is in partnership with Warrington Council’s Swim Training Scheme with the aim to provide the routes for the athlete to show COURAGE and PERSEVERANCE developed by their swimming that will prepare the individual for the challenges they will face in life.
