We are enormously grateful to our current sponsors and partners, without whom the squad would not survive. But funding is always tight, and to afford the best coaches, the best equipment and sufficient pool time for our elite squad of potential Olympians, we are always looking to bring more partners on board.

Your opportunity to begin a partnership of excellence

Derventio eXcel swim squad is THE performance centre for the most talented swimmers in Derbyshire. This small squad of dedicated young athletes has achieved success after success on the British, European and International stage.

Yet, despite the valued support we receive from local authorities and sporting organisations, grants for many elite sports have significantly reduced in recent years and so the squad’s survival is dependent on additional funding and sponsorship support from the private sector.

How will you benefit?

Your support will help to pave the way for future Olympic champions. This is not a long-term goal, this is something that is already a real prospect for several of our squad members: For example, Molly Renshaw narrowly missed out on London 2012 qualification having been crowned European Junior Champion in 200m breastroke. She has more recently broken the English 200m breastroke recordwhile swimming for GB and won Bronze at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in the same event; Abbie Wood won two golds and two silver medals in the 2013 European Youth Olympics and was nominated alongside four other European athletes for the 2013 Piotr Nurowski Best Young European Athlete Prize. Both of these swimmers have been identified as Podium Potential swimmers for Great Britain.

Your support will therefore benefit you by association with excellence. You will also be helping to inspire future generations of swimmers in Derbyshire – and elsewhere. In doing so, you will help to create highly disciplined, healthy and hard-working young men and women whose commitment would impress any employer when they venture into the workplace.

We hope you will consider becoming part of a winning team!
