Joining Policy

For those wishing to join, Penrith Swimming Club may, at times, have more demand for membership places than the Club is able to satisfy. We will aim to assess the swimmer and invite them to join the appropriate group as soon as a place is available.

Penrith Swimming Club will invite swimmers interested in joining the Club to an assessment where our coaches will grade the swimmers on the basis of age and ability. The Club then invites swimmers to join a specific squad. Each of these squads have a maximum number of available places, but we can normally accommodate new swimmers fairly quickly.

Penrith Swimming Club is not obliged to extend membership to any potential swimmer yet we maintain a strict equality policy which conforms to the Swim England policy. If, at an assessment, the coaches / teachers judge that swimmers are not suitable for the Club, then Penrith Swimming Club is not obliged to fill the available places. If a swimmer is not offered membership, our coaches / teachers will attempt to provide feedback.
