Join Us

Interested in joining LOBSC?

Entry to our squads is by invitation, usually we look for swimmers to have achieved British Swimming Stage 7 (or equivalent) before they would be considered but this is at the discretion of our coaches. All swimmers are invited to a free trial session where the coaches can assess their ability and either offer a place or advise on any areas that may require further improvement before they reach club entry standard. This also gives the swimmers a taster of what is involved in swim club so they can decide if it is for them.

You can contact our Club Secretary by emailing for more information on joining or to arrange a trial session.

We also offer Adult Learn to Swim Classes for further details click here:

If you do wish to accept an invitation to join a training squad, you will be given a welcome pack which will include an annual Membership Form which will need to be  completed and returned along with your joining fee (see fee details below) to a club coach within a week of starting training with us.
