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

We currently 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 now open. We particularly need to boost our under 10s gala team and priority will be given to these swimmers applying to join. Please contact the Membership Secretary for details: info@streathamswimmingclub.org

Payments
Annual membership for 2018 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

The 2020 gala season is here! Please check the 2020 diary of events for the dates of the Pentagon Galas and Octopus Galas as well as the Club Open competitions to make sure you don’t miss any.  Parent members and swimmers are asked to make themselves available to attend the Galas so that we can field our best team and improve on our overall results.  

Thank you to Brigid B for handling the club swimwear for the last couple of years. That task has now been taken over by Melanie Cooke. Melanie is usually on the balcony at Streatham Leisure Centre during club training sessions to ask about all swimwear. 

The committee is currently working towards the re-accreditation for ASA Swim Mark.

To quote the ASA website, this recognises the high standards of governance, sustainability and effectiveness that the club has reached (http://www.swimming.org/swimengland/swimmark-accreditation-for-clubs/)

The club is run entirely by volunteers – including all the teachers and organisers. 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.
