Squad Swim Trial


Competitive Squad Expectations

Camden Swiss Cottage Swim Club competitive squads swim across four locations within North West London. Depending on the squad to which a swimmer qualifies they will be required to participate in 2 to 7 sessions per week. As these are competitive swim squads, a swimmer is expected to compete regularly in  competitions as directed by the coach.

Trying out for the squads

In order to participate in a trial swimmer must be competent across all 4 strokes (front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly.) Disability swimmers should be able to confidently swim a minimum distance of 25m unaided in deep water.

Trial Days and Times

Trials are held on the first Tuesday and first Friday of each month. You must complete this form in order to book a trial. Swimmers arriving on the day without official confirmation will not be accepted. Please be aware that requests for trials are high and you may not be invited to the next scheduled trial if it is oversubscribed.

All trials take place at the Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre, Adelaide Rd London NW3 3NF.

Swimmers aged 9 to 11 years stage 8 and above 1st Tuesday of the month 5.30pm

Swimmers aged 12 to 18 years old 1st Friday of the month 6.30pm

Swimmers aged 18 years and over 1st Tuesday of the month 8.45pm

Trial Process

Once your trial is complete you will be contacted with the results within 48 hours.

At that time you may be invited to join one of the competitive squads for a period of 30 days. This period is meant to give the swimmer and team a mutual evaluation period.
