Anyone wanting to join Woking Swimming Club, including already competitive swimmers, should firstly fill in our Trial Request for New Members form and we’ll get back to you about the next step.
For children born between January 2009 and December 2011
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 March 2018
Age range: Children born between January 2009 and December 2011
More details: View our swimming trials criteria here
After receiving your details, we’ll allocate your child a time slot to show us their swimming at Woking and the trial will be free of charge.
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 January 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 complete our Trial Request for New Members form and we’ll take it from there.
Just before your trial
Before attending the trial, you’ll need to complete our Membership Form, and we’ll send out a reminder about this before the trial takes place.
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.
