we encourage every swimmer to reach their potential, whatever that may be.

Under 10 years old minimum standard:  25 metres on the front and back plus 10 metres kick on all four strokes.

Latest News

Club training sessions are held at Streatham Leisure Centre on Tuesdays and Fridays and St Josephs on Wednesdays and Fridays.  As the covid pandemic endures we ask everyone to maintain social distancing and mask wearing in the gallery during training sessions.  Swim England is encouraging everyone in school year 7 and above to wear a face covering to indoor swimming lessons, training sessions and competitions when not physically competing, training, teaching or coaching, unless medically exempt.

The Octopus and Pentagon Galas are not taking place at the moment. 

The club is run entirely by volunteers – including all the teachers and organisers.  Any contribution is welcome and the more volunteers we have the better. There are opportunities to train as a swimming official including gala judges and time keepers with course fees paid for by the club. Other volunteer opportunities include joining the committee, organising the annual presentation evening and registration of swimmers at training sessions. Please contact any member of the committee if you are interested.  

The next AGM is due to take place in the Spring, notice to be given of the date.
