Swim Bournemouth will always offer a trial to any swimmer from 7 years old and our qualified coaches will provide you with feedback on the next steps. We aim to arrange trials once a month depending on demand at one of our pools in Littledown or Canford.

If you would like to arrange a trial please email [email protected] with the following information :

  • Parent's name, email address and a telephone number so that we can contact you.
  • Your swimmer's name, date of birth, and current level of ability (e.g. ASA Lesson Level)
  • Swim England membership number (if applicable).
  • Whether you are transferring from another club.

We will then get in touch with you to arrange a trial or request further information. Please note that the club is run by volunteers and responses can take a couple of days.

New member registration

Please only follow the registration process once instructed to by our membership secretary, usually after your trial swim, so that we can welcome you to our club.

The process to sign up for the club is simple and should not take very long. Please goto Member Registration under Join Us on the main menu and provide all of the information requested. Once you have completed this registration process, you will get access to your own private account that will enable you to see you current bills, monitor your swim times histories, maintain your own contact information, and more.
