Please see the Junior Section for details of how our Junior Section works and how swimmers showing potential may progress from this section into the competitive part of the Club.

 
COMPETITIVE/SQUAD SWIMMERS

What will happen when I make a new membership enquiry?

  • You will be contacted and asked a few relevant questions e.g. prospective swimmer's age, address, contact number and current level of swimming ability.
  • Your details will then be passed on to the Trials Manager, who will arrange a mutually convenient time when the swimmer can attend a trial swim with the Head Coach.
  • If the trial is successful and a place is available, the swimmer will be allocated to the appropriate squad for an 8 week trial period.
  • If no place is currently available, you will be placed on the waiting list.

TRANSFERRING FROM ANOTHER CLUB

What will happen when I make a new membership enquiry?

  • You will be contacted and asked a few relevant questions including previous club experience and current level of swimming ability.
  • Our Membership Secretary will determine which House is most appropriate to your swimming experience (RNSS or HBEST).
  • Our Head Coach will contact the Head Coach of your current club to discuss the proposed move in the context of your training needs.
  • If it is agreed that the move is in the best interest of the swimmer and a place is available the swimmer will be allocated to the appropriate squad
  • Membership requests from swimmers seeking to return to Hillingdon SC after a move to another club will be considered on a case by case basis.

ALL MEMBERS 

  • There will be ongoing assessment of each swimmer’s progress.
  • The Squad Coach will discuss any issues that may arise with the swimmer and/or their family if appropriate. We expect swimmers and families to do the same.
  • Please be aware that joining HSC is a big commitment for both swimmer and family in terms of time and energy.
  • Each swimmer is expected to attend the required number of sessions whenever possible, and also be available for galas when requested.
