How to Join

Fill in the contact us if your child is interested in joining Musselburgh ASC and we will get back in touch with you.

As we are a swimming club we ask potential new members to do a short trial in the pool during one of our training sessions at Musselburgh Sports Centre. We would expect swimmers to have attained equivalent or higher of SwimSkills level 4 of the Scottish Swimming Learn to Swim Framework  taught in most swim centres.

Supervised by one of our coaches, your child will be asked to swim several lengths of the pool to demonstrate their ability in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. Don’t worry if their strokes are not perfect, they just need to be able to demonstrate reasonable proficiency and show a willingness to learn.

The coach will also ask them to do some other small tasks like treading water for a period of time and diving from the side of the pool.

The trial usually lasts around 30 minutes but could last the hour if your child is at the correct level.

Further information about training times, membership fees and competitions is also available in the Members section of the website.
