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!
