Join Us


Anyone wanting to join Woking Swimming Club, including already competitive swimmers, should follow the instructions below and we’ll get back to you about the next step.

For children born between October 2009 and August 2013

For younger children, we run trials towards the end of each term so that we can offer places for the next term.

Next New Member Trials

Date: Friday 16th November 2018

Age range: Children born between October 2009 and August 2013

More details: View our swimming trials criteria here

Please apply through our Trial Request for New Members form

After receiving your details, we will add your child to our list for the next trials and send you your time slot the weekend before.

Whilst at the trial they'll swim a length (in the training pool) of front crawl, a length of backstroke and, depending on their ability, maybe another couple of lengths. Older children may also be asked to swim breaststroke and fly at their trial.

Older children should be able to swim approximately 15-25 metres, with a reasonable stroke, and younger children should be able to swim basic front crawl and backstroke.

During the trial we’ll assess their ability and establish if we have a space for them within their age group and ability.

For children born before October 2009

With older children we like to have an idea of their ability before booking you for a trial as, the older you are, the harder it is to step into a competitive club and swim with children in your own age group.

If you are already at another swimming club and are looking to transfer, or perhaps you are moving into the Woking area, then please apply through through our Trial Request for New Members form and we’ll take it from there.

And finally…

Please remember that we’re a competitive swimming club and are looking for children who want to swim competitively and whose family are prepared to accept the commitment.

We very much appreciate parents, and guardians, who are happy to help out at galas and participate, on a voluntary basis, in the running of the club.

Thank you for your interest in joining us at Woking Swimming Club and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
