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.

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. Please contact the Membership Secretary for details: info@streathamswimmingclub.org

Latest News

The committee is very pleased to announce that the club has just received its ASA Swim mark essential accreditation.

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/)

We are particularly pleased as it is just over four years since the club returned to Streatham Ice and Leisure after a similar number of years in the wilderness following the demolition of the old pool.  When the club restarted at Streatham, numbers were down and we didn’t get the same space in the new pool as we had had in the old one.  Nevertheless, numbers have grown and standards improved.  There is still a way to go.   Training swimmers is not a quick job.  Our swimmers range in age from 8-16 with gaps in some age groups.  The club’s development plan aims to fill the gaps and improve competitiveness across the age range.

Here are some of the objectives in our development plan.

  1. Increase the lane space at Streatham pool on Tuesday evenings. This will help us to train more younger swimmers and fill the gaps we have.
  2. Improve gala attendance by swimmers. SSC is a competitive club.  Swimmers need competition practice to improve
  3. Get some swimmers to county qualification standard. As the swimmers’ time with the club increases, they will start to reach county standard and inspire their swimming companions.
  4. Improve parent participation. SSC is run entirely by volunteers,  with no paid staff.  Parents are an essential resource!

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.
