Registration

Entry to the club

New member registration takes place each year during the last two weeks of May. Membership application forms are available on line in May and also at the swim desk during the last two weeks of May. The completed forms must be returned to the swim desk at the Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre by the closing date. No late applications will be accepted.

The child must be 4 years of age at entry date and meet the selection criteria.

Once the existing members re-apply early June, we will then know what places are available and in which session. Applicants with swimming experience will be asked to attend for an assessment in June. The children are then allocated a session according to the available spaces and ability.

These children will be notified for commencement September/October.

Unsuccessful applicants remain on a waiting list and the existing swimmers are continually re-assessed throughout the year. If spaces become available the applicant will be notified. A new waiting list is compiled each year in May and you have to re-apply each year. Admission to the club is agreed by the committee to ensure fairness.
