About the Joining Process

To become a member of HSC you will need to be assessed. We will generally trial swimmers every 3 – 6 months depending on space. The assessment will be based on both stroke and technique; the swimmer will be expected to demonstrate 1 lengths of each stroke.

The trial will normally take place on a Friday evening at 6.45pm and last for about 30-45 minutes depending on how many swimmers are taking part. If you would like your child to have a trial please download and complete the trial application form below and post it in the box next to the notice board.

The assessment will determine if the swimmer is competent enough to join the club and what training squad they will join. All swimmers will be notified on the evening if their trial has been successful. If they have been unsuccessful feedback will be given. To be accepted as a new member, swimmers must be prepared to attend 80% of all training sessions available to them. In addition all new members must agree to abide by all club rules.

HSC is a competitive swimming club and we expect swimmers to be available when selected to represent the club.

If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact our Membership Officer Christina Southgate on christinasouthgate21@gmail.com.
