We have drop-in trials on a Sunday morning at 11am at Dulwich Prep with coach Daria. This is suitable for any swimmer from beginner (non-swimmers) up to County competition level. It is beneficial for you to register by clicking here before you arrive so we have your child's details such as age and school and it will help us process your trial a little quicker. It is also useful for you to email in afterwards - but please don't email before the trial unless you have a specific question, as this will probably just delay you coming in - the administration is run by volunteers and responses aren't always immediate.
If you are approaching County or Regional times you should email in for an assessment with the Head Coach giving details of your current club and ASA number. Click here to send an email requesting a trial with the Head Coach.
About our squads
Many parents would like to know about our squad structure and how the club works before they come for a trial. Alongside the information below, it is also worth browsing the timetable and squad structure.
- Academy sessions are for beginners up to the lower competition level and run once a week on Sunday mornings at Dulwich Prep. This group also incorporates older children (9-13 yrs) who are not ready or do not have a desire to move into competitive swimming but would still like once a week lessons. We should be able to cater for every level, but if your swimmer is keen on entering a competition squad, the places may be limited and restricted to those that are more able for their age-group.
- Junior competition level swimmers are in Development up to Bronze squad. From Dolphins upwards they should start to enter competitions and all in these squads are expected to attend the twice yearly Club Championships.
- Senior competition level swimmers are in Silver up to Performance squad. These swimmers have extra training at the beginning and end of the season (whcih starts in September and ends in July) and they are working towards County, Regional and National competitions.
- Our non-competitive squads are Otters and Club. These are for swimmers that do not compete externally but still want the fitness benefits and improvement of technique that you get from a 1 hour session, 1, 2 or 3 times a week.
