Membership to Swim Squad is open to all swimmers irrespective of race, sex , disability, political persuasion, religion or sexual orientation and will be offered when space is available in the squad and the swimmer has been assessed by the coaches. The Club may refuse membership only for good and sufficient cause, such as conduct or character likely to bring Swim Squad or the sport into disrepute, or, in the case of a swimmer, being unable to achieve the entry standards required by the coaches.
Unfortunately due to pool size, health and safety, swimmer enjoyment and access to pool time the squad size is limited in line with the constitution. There are no more than 9 swimmers per lane. As a result of this restriction, places will be allocated by the pool through the Foundation Squad and will be determined by the coaches as to who is ready to move up. Some swimmers may be fast tracked through on the Pathway Programme if they are of a high enough standard. All notifications of membership will be made to the membership Secretary/Secretary in line with the club constitution.
