Joining Stretford Amateur Swimming Club

We are recruiting new swimmers!

We offer up to 3 free taster sessions to see if your swimmer is ready to join our club and start their swimming journey, most likely in our Mini Dolphins group. Swimmers should be competent in Front Crawl, Backstroke and Breaststroke over at least 25m to attend the taster.  If you’re not sure whether your child is ready, either ask their current swim teacher or contact the club – the membership secretary or coach will then discuss it with you.

Our taster sessions take place at our home pool at Stretford Sports Village (Chester Centre) by arrangement with the membership secretary or coaching team. Please contact us to arrange the initial taster session, or with any questions by emailing Bonnie –

We aim to ensure that all young swimmers enjoy their journey in the sport and gain something from it, whether that is competitive success, fitness & wellbeing, or routes to employment in the leisure industry once they get to age 16.
