CoStA (City of St Albans Swimming Club)

At CoStA we strive to be the best that we can be ... while having fun


CoStA aims to run three Club galas during the year: Club Champs, Sprint Night and Under 10 JH Memorial gala.

CoStA Club Champs

Our Club Champs gives all our swimmers the opportunity to compete, gain experience & record times.  We invite both our CAT1 and CAT2 swimmers to this gala.

We currently offer all strokes (Back, Breast, Fly, Free) in 50m, 100m & 200m. 100m IM, 200m IM & 400m IM. 400m, 800m and 1500m Free.

Our Club Champs is run over 4 sessions, over one weekend (Sat & Sun), normally late June, annually. The gala is run & licensed under SE Laws and Technical Rules, usually Level 4.

This meet is usually an 'Active Withdrawal' meet, so there is no sign in. If you are not swimming you MUST WITHDRAW at least 45 minutes before the start of the session. Any swimmer not present when required to swim will incur a £10 penalty.

CoStA Sprint Meet

We run a Sprint Meet, normally one Saturday evening in late September, including 4 x 50m in all strokes and a choice of 100m Free & 100m IM. This is normally for swimmers aged 9 years and over although we may offer a 50m freestyle race for 8 year olds.


The John Hempenstall Memorial Gala

We also hold a smaller gala, specifically for our younger CoStA members, to get their first taste of competition. This gala offers 25m races in all strokes, 50m free and 100m IM. This gala is usually held on a Sunday afternoon, in early November each year at the High School.
