Thank you for showing an interest in swimming with Elmbridge Phoenix Swimming Club for fitness, competition, and fun.
At present we have a very long waiting list for new joiners so it may be a while until you receive an invite to trial. We still encourage you to complete the new joiners form as we will invite swimmers to trial as places become available.
This does not apply to swimmers transferring from another Swim England or International Club. Please complete a new joiner form and state you are a club transfer.
Ideally, we prefer swimmers to have reached a minimum standard of stage 7 or 8 via a swimming lesson programme before applying for a trial but we do take swimmers, aged 6-8, who may not have achieved this level. As a minimum swimmers need to be able to swim
- 25-50m Front Crawl & Backstroke
- 25m Breaststroke
- 25m Butterfly (dolphin kick)
- perform a forward roll or tumble turn and a dive (minimum kneeling dive)
The purpose of these trials is to ensure that the swimmer is placed in the correct training group for their ability and development. At the trial the coach will ask each child to complete one length (25m) of the following strokes: · Front Crawl · Backstroke · Breaststroke · Butterfly (basic only required) · a forward roll/tumble turn and dive
The process is slightly different if you are interested in transferring from another club.
You will be informed as soon as possible after the trial whether you have been successful. If you are successful you will receive information regarding which swimming group you will be in, together with details of start date, squad timetable and cost. A joining fee will be charged with your first month's fees. This place in the club will be held for a period of two weeks. If the place is not taken up during this period, your child will have to re-trial for his/her place at the next trial date.
Unfortunately, we are unable to defer joining membership. If you are unsuccessful, we will give you pointers for improvement. Please feel free to retrial when you have addressed those points. Please complete the form here if you are interested in taking part in a trial.
