Streatham Swimming Club is a competitive club which welcomes all young people and their families. Working with committed swimmers and their parents,
we encourage every swimmer to reach their potential, whatever that may be.

Welcome to Streatham Swimming Club

During the current lock down with all sports and leisure facilities closed we are unable to hold our sessions. The committee has decided to suspend monthly subscriptions during this uncertain time. Club reserves will be used to pay the annual membership fee this year. We will resume as soon as possible once the pools re-open and it is safe to do so. We will review our ‘covid’ protocols as set out below and update all club members.

Normally we train at two venues: Streatham pool on Tuesdays and Fridays and St Joseph’s College on Sundays and Wednesdays.

Trials for prospective new members are suspended whilst we are not swimming. However please do continue to contact the Membership Secretary for details: info@streathamswimmingclub.org.

We particularly need to boost our under 10s gala team and priority will be given to these swimmers applying to join. Please

Payments
Annual membership for 2021 will be paid by the club.  Normally the annual membership payable by the club to Swim England is £40 per annum for the first family member, £35 for the second and £30 for third and subsequent family members.
Monthly Subscriptions are £25 for Pre-Group 1, £33 per month for Juniors (Groups 1-4), £38 per month for Seniors. 

We encourage parents and ex-members to come to the Sunday morning 9am session. For the bargain price of £3 you get an hour’s work out under Georgette’s tender care. You need to be able to swim 800m and do most of the strokes.

Latest News

Club swimming is once again suspended (December 2020). When leisure facilities re-open we will consider if it is safe to resume the club training sessions at Streatham Leisure Centre on Tuesdays and Fridays and St Josephs on Wednesdays and Fridays.  As before every precaution will be taken to keep everyone – swimmers, teachers, helpers and parents safe – when attending club sessions.  We will update our covid protocols once a return date is set and a new briefing will be sent out to all swimmers and parents and posted here. The headlines are likely to be as before:

  • Do not attend swimming sessions if you or a member of your family has Covid 19 symptoms
  • Arrive swim ready
  • Bring your own equipment
  • Sign in and provide contact details
  • Keep socially distant on poolside as spectators and as swimmers
  • Wear a mask inside the swimming centres at all times when not swimming

The Octopus and Pentagon Galas are not taking place at the moment. Swim England has postponed the start of any swimming competitions until 2021 to allow swimmers time to rebuild their swim fitness. The Club Championships are not currently scheduled to take place at the usual time in November.

The club is run entirely by volunteers – including all the teachers and organisers. Welcome to Hayley Cook who has taken on the role of Welfare Officer from Carlene Archer. Our thanks to Carlene for her contribution in this role over several years. Any help you can offer is welcome,  please contact a member of the committee. Roles available: committee members, gala official and judge (training paid for by the club), registration at club sessions.

The AGM is due to take place on 8 February 2021 8pm by ZOOM.
