Celtic Dolphins is an ambitious, competitive swimming club based at Pontardawe Swimming Pool, located in the heart of the Swansea Valley.  

It is a development club that does not 'teach' children to swim but rather identifies swimmers with potential to train and compete.

Our swimmers compete individually and as part of a team in district, regional, Welsh National and League events.

Established in 2012, with the merger of Swansea Valley and Llandarcy Swimming Clubs, Celtic Dolphins' philosophy is to promote the health, social and other benefits of swimming and to provide a pathway to develop future generations of local swimmers to progress from grass roots to performance swimming.

Being part of an established swimming club offers tremendous opportunities for children and young people to develop and improve their swimming technique as their bodies grow and mature.  At the same time they will greatly improve fitness, learn to cope with competitive challenges, build confidence as well as trying to achieve their full potential as athletes.
