Derventio eXcel is the elite swimming squad for Derbyshire and is part of Bill Sweetenham’s blueprint for international swimming success. Derventio eXcel is a partnership between the existing swimming clubs in the county, the ASFGB, the ASA, Derbyshire Sport, the University of Derby, Derby College, Derby City Council, South Derbyshire District Council and Erewash Borough Council. It offers young swimmers in Derbyshire the opportunity to meet their swimming potential by training over 20 hours each week, and offers land training resources and sport science support.

Derventio team-mate Livvi Sefton earned herself a place in the European Junior Championships with her performance in the 200m butterfly. Derventio eXcel swimmer Dave Ellis, fulfilled his potential by qualifying for this year’s paralympics games in Beijing .
