Cardiff Met Swimming will become a Swim Wales affiliated club before the university term restarts in September 2017.
In an arrangement with Swim Wales, Cardiff Met students will get the chance to represent the university outside of the general BUCS competitions, giving more opportunities for team members to compete during the academic year.
Dave Tonge Swimming Performance Director: “This is a really exciting time for Cardiff Met Swimming. Our student swimmers will now be able to compete for the university at BUCS and also external competitions around the country.”
With the team recently becoming a Cardiff Met focus sport along with a new swimming pool development on the horizon, it is hoped the team can continue to grow, attracting swimmers from across the UK as well as internationally.
