About Whitby Seals ASC


Whitby Seals Amateur Swimming Club was founded in 1960 as an open Water swimming club, based at Whitby's outdoor pool. Club events at the time included swims in Lake Windermere, Lake Bala, the River Tay and a Sandsend to Whitby Coastal swim.


The club became a member of the Amateur Swimming Association within the first year and in 1975 moved to the warmer climate of the new indoor pool.


The club is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers, with 100+ swimmers from beginners upwards, which became a Registered Charity in 2014 (Registered Charity Number 1158433).


Within a happy friendly environment we are able to teach children to swim from the age of five and continue their development into competitive swimming right up to and beyond University years.


 Swimmers can enjoy being part of a team, swimming in many of our competitions from our fun “Friendly” galas to representing the club in the Riding’s League, Graded, County or Regional competitions.


 We endeavour to provide every club member with the opportunity to realise his or her full potential.  We are linked to a Performance Swimming Club for those swimmers who want to develop their swimming to National level.


Where it all began. Whitby's "Spiders Web" outdoor swimming pool.
