Trial Swim


If you are looking for swimming development lessons, a new swimming club or want to move from lessons to club swimming then why not come along for an assessment of your swimming and start off your competitive swimming career at Bourne End Swimming Club? We offer both a swim development programme as well as a competitive swimming club

Swim Development Programme

If you are interested in our Swim Development Programme, then a visit to Court Garden at Marlow may be more appropriate for your swimmer. We take youngsters able to progress across the pool (~5-7m) unaided on their front and back and develop their strokes and water skills through 30 minute sessions to the National Plan for Teaching Swimming. This is a pre-competitive system designed to create the right skill set so that your swimmer can progress to the main competitive swimming club and continue into a competitive swimming environment.

Please email Chris OConnell to register your interest to with our club and when you would like an assessment. Assessments are held on Friday evenings at Court Garden on a continuous basis.

Swimming Club

We arrange for swimming assessments for the Competitive Section at the end of each month. Please email Chris O'Connell to register your interest with our club and when you would like an assessment. Forthcoming assessments dates are at the bottom of this page. Typical entry level for the competitive section is the ability to swim 25m in front crawl, back crawl and breastroke.

The assessment will consist of an assessment of your swimmers ability in each stroke so that we can place them in the squad which best suits their current ability and provides the right environment for their development in our sport. Once we have carried out this assessment, we will contact you with the outcome of your assessment and invite you to join the selected squad from the start of the next swimming term or sooner if places are available.
