To join Richmond Dales ASC please complete the application form below and put in the RDASC post box at Richmond pool or email: Admissions Secretary:  –

Let us know your name, date of birth and previous swimming experience/ability, together with your address, contact ‘phone number and name of the person emailing!

We will then contact you to arrange time for a trial swim. Trial swims are held on a Thursday evening. On arrival go to the desk in the cafe and see any committee member. Your child will be asked to swim 4 lengths of the pool at Richmond and then continue for the rest of the hour with the Swim Skills squad. You will usually hear within a couple of weeks whether or not your child is invited to join the club.

As a rough guide we take children who:

  • have completed Stage 5 in swimming lessons
  • can swim 25m front crawl, back crawl and breaststroke
  • are able to demonstrate a basic butterfly technique

This will enable you to see if competitive swimming training is for you, and for our coach to place you in the correct squad!

We look forward to hearing from you.
