Membership renewal for 2018 is open

Discounted membership renewal 

As previous years there is a discounted rate if membership is renewed before the 1st of February. Follow the links below to pay online.

Please make sure you complete the membership form so we can keep your details up to date:

Club funding policy 

As a club, we occasionally get asked if we would help club members gain professional coaching qualifications.

We have recently updated the process for applying for funding to make it more transparent to club members and to ensure the club gains benefit from such funding.

The process for applying for funding is set out in the document below if you feel having read the process that you could be eligible, you can ask for an application form via Pat Garland using the club email address –

It’s also worth noting that other professional organisations offer funding to club volunteers where appropriate (British Cycling for example), so it may be worth exploring these options as well.

Open water swimming training

Open water swimming training at Clevedon Marine Lake

Held by our swimming coach Jax, these sessions will all take place on a Sunday afternoon from 5.00-6.00 pm on the following dates when the tide times work and there should be space on the lake. However, the lake is free to the public so we cannot guarantee how many will be there on the day. The sessions provided the elements provide for a safe environment  to swim in.  
April 23rd 
May 21st
 June 25th 
 July 30th
Sept 10th 
Oct 8th

The sessions will be progressive and the first one will be more out of the water (so don’t be put off by the fact its in April) to discuss the effects that cold water has on our body, with a special guest who is an experienced cold and open water swimmer. 
These sessions are not endurance or interval training sessions. They will cover anxieties, the changed environment , cold water, wet suits, entry and exit, sighting, turning, and more.

If you would like to attend, please add your name to the doodle poll below. You can come to any number or all of the sessions. Places will be on a first come first served basis.
