Join Our Club

Hemel Hempstead Swimming Club has around 140 members from age 7 to 60+ who regularly compete at local, county, regional and national levels. We are a family orientated, inclusive club, dedicated to promoting and developing the sport of swimming, for all ages and abilities.  Our team of qualified coaches and staff provide a supportive environment, to allow swimmers to reach their full potential.

The club holds trials approximately once a month on a Sunday evening.  To book a place on our next trial, contact our Membership Secretary using the form. Members can join the Club from 7 years upwards once they have reached Swim England level 6, after an initial assessment by one of our trained coaches. To join the club, swimmers should typically be capable of swimming a 25m length, and show some understanding of proper breathing technique.  They should also be able to demonstrate an attempt at swimming breaststroke and butterfly. They can then train to the end of the month in which they have their assessment as free trial then they start paying membership fees from the 1st of the following month.

If joining from another club, a swimmer’s current personal best times or PBs will determine what group he or she should join, space permitting. The training programme is organised by grouping swimmers according to their ability, attitude and age. For more details of the different groups and training times, please visit our swim squad section on.

Being part of the club offers the opportunity to train with other swimmers who share a passion for the sport.  We are always looking for new members to join our community so please get in touch.


We are a competitive sport club, with our swimmers competing
at all levels from local team galas to National and European events.
