Welcome to the home of Boston Amateur Swimming Club

Here you can find all the information you need, whether you are a swimmer with the club, are a parent of a swimmer or are interested in joining.

To keep up to date with all the latest news, click on the Follow icon in the bottom left hand corner of the site.

Welcome to the Club!

Tonight we will be holding our latest Sharks Information evening in the Activity Room in the Training Pool. We hope to see several of our new swimmers and parents who will be  starting their time with Boston Amateur Swimming Club. The meeting starts at 7pm.

These evenings are held at the end of each Council’s Swimming Lesson terms for swimmers who have completed their swimming courses in Dolphins!

At this standard, you will need to join Boston Amateur Swimming Club. There is a annual membership fee, currently £15 as we are coming to the end of our swim year, which covers registration and insurance with the national governing body, Swim England.

Sharks meet four times a week in the Geoff Moulder Training Pool:

  • Tuesday 4.30pm until 5.30pm
  • Thursday 4.30pm until 5.30pm
  • Friday 4.30pm until 5.30pm
  • Saturday 8.30am until 9.30am

All of these sessions are available to you, and you don’t need to book in advance.

As well as the joining fee, each squad has a monthly fee. Currently, for Sharks, this is £28. We prefer if this is paid by Standing Order (forms are available from the Coaching Staff), but can be paid by Cash or Cheque – if this is the case please put in a sealed envelope clearly marking the swimmers name.  You can also set up a standing order through online banking if you have that facility, for details of this please email the Treasurer on bostonswimmingclubweb@gmail.com

For new Sharks, providing you have joined the Club, you can start training with us on Tuesday 29th May 2018. We look forward to seeing you then!

Well done to our young swimmers

Well done to the 51 swimmers who took part in this weekend’s Mini Champs Gala.

The gala is often the first taste of competition for our earlier squad members. This year, the competition age ranged from just 5 years to 13 years and all swam terrifically. A few also went on to compete last night in Peterborough for the second round of the 2018 Fenland League competition.

Results are now on our Race Day page.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped out on the day. Also special thanks to Rumblin Tums, who donated a cheesecake for the raffle. The raffle and cake stall was organised by Bianca Orrey and raised £83 for club funds – thank you. One prize remains unclaimed – ticket no. 280! If you have this, please can you let the club know and we will reunite you with your prize!
