We also have an active para and disability squad. We have swimming sessions 7 days a week at King Edward's School pools, Edgbaston; Blue Coat School; Harborne Leisure centre; Morris Centre and Langley Baths.

Orion SC are a swim21 approved club. swim21 accreditation is the ASA's recognised kitemark for the development of effective, ethical and sustainable affiliated clubs.

Welcome to our website. Hopefully you will find all the information you need. If you want to try out swimming with Orion, and would like to know more about our free trial, please fill in the form on our contacts page and email it to us at

Volunteers please!

WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF VOLUNTEERS AND OFFICIALS for each session of the Club Championships.

We need 35+ volunteers for each day and 20 of these must be qualified officials or the event will not get its license.

Please, please consider helping and if you have any contacts at all with qualified officials at other clubs can you approach them on our behalf.

If anyone would offer to do the announcements this would free up Loz up to officiate and that may make the difference in terms of officials needed poolside

No parking at King Edwards

The school has provided details about the dates on which there will be no parking for Orion members. The Chief Master has specifically stated that under no circumstances should any person park their vehicle on the double yellow lines throughout the site, at the Ruddock Performing Arts Centre and most definitely not on the grass verges.

We hope you will take note and act accordingly to maintain the good relationship we have with the school.

There will be no parking anywhere on the school site for Orion on the following dates:
