Swim England membership and competing in England


Swim England membership is necessary to be able to compete in England. You can only gain full membership by being a member of a Swim England affiliated swimming club.

Joining a club offers swimmers a supportive community, access to Swim England qualified teachers and coaches, and a structure with advice and guidance to ensure you develop as a competitive swimmer.

Types of Swim England membership needed to compete

To compete in England you will need Club Compete Membership. This is for members of any age who want to compete in open competitions. It gives you everything you need to train up to an international standard.

Club Train Swim England membership is for people learning to swim or swimming but do not compete in open competitions.
