South Croydon SC Octopus League Champions 2013

South Croydon SC Octopus League Runner's Up 2012, 2015, 2018

South Croydon entered this inter-club league for the first time in 2011. We gained our first gala win in the league on the 26th May 2012 and came Runner's Up in the league 2012 and achieved Top Honours for 2013. Swimmers in the squads are asked to keep the league dates which are shown on the website free should they be selected for the team. SCSC achieved 3rd place in the league 2016, 2017 and Runner's Up in 2018.

Swimmers are selected upon times recorded at galas and in training sessions and as time restrainted is based on performances at open meets and commitment to training etc. We generally take a team of around 20 swimmers. Entrance is free to Swimmers. If your child would like to be considered for selection please email us at or speak to Hannah at the club.

Parents: If you would like to help out at these galas in any way please speak to Hannah who will advise you how to obtain Swim England Membership which is the first step in volunteering. A rule of entering galas is that we supply volunteers to help and it can be fun too!

All galas are held at The Spa, Beckenham.
