Come and join us!

If you are interested in you or your child joining our club then please get in touch with our Membership Secretary –   The Masters squad is for swimmers aged 19+yrs of age, the Juniors section is for swimmers under 19.

Junior Swimmers:

Joining your child – We will ask him/her to attend a trial in order to assess their ability and establish whether or not we have a space for them within their age group and ability.

The child should be able to swim at least 50 metres continuously, with a reasonable technique in each of the following strokes – front crawl, breaststroke and backstroke. Older swimmers may also be asked to swim butterfly. The shortest swimming session that the club runs is an hour.

To see the dates of the next trials and book a slot, please click here , or email

The membership secretary will contact you with further information and confirm your swimmers place on the trial.

If your child is successful at the assessment and we can offer him/her a place within the Club, you will need to pay a Membership fee of £46/£67 (depending on the level of ASA Membership required) and one month’s membership fee which is dependent on the squad allocation. You will also need to register on Active which a link will be sent to you by our Membership Secretary upon a successful trial.

The club is run on a “not for profit” basis with fees set to cover the costs of running the club. With the exception of the Head Coach and selected Coaches, the club is run by un-paid volunteers and the fees collected are used in the main to pay for the hire of the swimming pool at the Kings Centre and at Ardingly School.

There are three elements to the fees

1. Monthly squad fees

2. Membership fee (which is charged Annually)

The Membership fee includes membership renewal to Swim England, which is due in January of each year.

Any new member joining the Club will need to pay a Membership fee of £46 for Club Train or £67 for Club Compete.
