Our Sponsors and Partners

Team GCSC are proud to work in partnership with local providers across Gloucestershire and beyond. We are grateful to have been awarded a Sport England return-to-play grant in 2021 to support our return to the pool, and are committed to the ethos of ‘paying-it forward’: our Club is run entirely by volunteers; our coaching team supports youth swimming across the South West region through development camps and inter-Club events; we support our local food bank at our fun galas.

We are interested in working with like-minded organisations who can support us to develop our Club. If your passion is to provide inclusive opportunities for youth development and sport in Gloucestershire, we’d love to hear from you via our Contact Us page.
