The Dragons Disabled Swimming Club is a competitive swimming club for all disabilities and ages. The only request we have of possible new members is that they can swim 25m or more without assistance.

Our session takes place every Saturday from 5:00-6:00pm at Caerphilly Leisure Centre. Our head coach, Peter Key is also the head coach of Caerphilly County Swimming Squad.

We formed in 1993 to increase the opportunities for the talented Welsh swimmers who wanted to progress further than the traditional ASTRA set up could offer them. We have seen many talented swimmers at our club throughout our time including five Paralympians; David Roberts CBE, Gareth Duke, Nyree Kindred, Liz Johnson and Rhiannon Henry. Some of our former members have also represented Great Britain at the Paralympics in athletics such as Kate Arnold, Jordan Howe and Nathan Stephens, the latter has also represented Britain at the Winter Paralympics. One of our former swimmers, Sara Head picked up a bronze medal at the London 2012 Paralympic table tennis competition.

Our aim at the club is to allow our swimmers the opportunity to push themselves as far as they can in a competitive environment. The intention then is that they will hopefully progress to represent Wales at regional and national level, and ultimately join the ranks of our illustrious Paralympians.

Our sessions are open to those of all disabilities and age and we charge £4.00 a week. We are affiliated to Swim Wales to ensure that our clubs has insurance cover and to continue with this, Swim Wales require members to have an annual membership. More can be found on our membership page.
