Kingsbridge Kingfishers

Swimming Club

How to Join Kingfishers

For new swimmers joining the club it is important that they are placed in a group which matches their ability and for this reason if you are interested in joining us we would expect you to undertake a short assessment. Please contact us in order to put your child on the waiting list for try outs.


Waiting List

All children wishing to join the club should firstly put their name on the waiting list. When there are spaces in the club, children at the top of the waiting list will be called to attend a club trial where they will be assessed. Club trials are generally held once every term.
