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 2020 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. Monthly subscriptions were suspended while the swimming sessions were not taking place during the covid 19 ‘lock down’. They are now due. 

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 has resumed after the Covid 19 pubilc health emergency saw the closure of all sports and leisure facilities in March 2020. The club training sessions have resumed at Streatham Leisure Centre on Tuesdays and Fridays and St Josephs on Wednesdays and Fridays.  Every precaution has been taken to keep everyone – swimmers, teachers, helpers and parents safe – when attending club sessions.  We need everyone to comply with the new rules to ensure that we can keep swimming in these challenging times. Swimmers are currently being offered specific slots in a changed time table. Look out for the weekly schedules sent by email for your slot. Please also read the SSC Return to Swimming Briefing for full details.

Headlines:

  • 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 could not take place during ‘lock down’ and will be re-scheduled shortly.
