We are a friendly and relaxed club but we are also competitive with a focus on helping each swimmer and water polo player develop their ability to the fullest in all the main strokes and skills. If you are interested in swimming or water polo for LASWPC we will need to first assess your abilities at a trial swim and/or water polo session. At the session, the coach will have you swim laps using various strokes to determine your abilities and for water polo look at the basic fundamental skills of sculling and eggbeater kick. From this we will make a recommendation on the training programme that fits your current swimming or water polo skills and ability.
If there is space available within the ability level the coach recommends, you will be asked to complete the required forms and organise to pay the membership fees and set-up the monthly subscription fees in order to join the club.
Although, we are primarily a competitive club looking to develop and progress swimmers and water polo players with existing skills; we do offer a Learn to Swim (from 5 years old) and mini polo (from 9 years old). For mini polo it is recommended that you also attend swimming sessions to support your water polo.
For a FREE trial session contact us to organise a suitable time. Please note that trial sessions are strictly by appointment. To do this:
