Our members travel to a number of Pools in the Essex area for Competitions and Galas.

      The benefits of joining a swim team at an early age will last a lifetime. Besides the comfort of knowing that your little angel will be okay when he or she goes over to a friend’s house who happens to have a pool in the backyard, there are numerous other advantages.


You can view all the 2021 competition and events  but only the ADDITIONAL information is displayed on the desktop website.

Important Information for RETURN TO TRAINING

RADS will be returning to Clements Hall from Monday April 12th.  To start with we will be operating exactly the same timetable as pre Lockdown (forgotten what lockdown we are on , the one before Christmas), this will gradually change over the coming weeks but for ease we will carry on as before Christmas. As per government guidelines we cannot welcome back swimmers who were 18 before 31/8/2020. So anyone in academic year 13 can still swim. If you are unsure please ask and we will check for you. In the coming weeks our hours will increase and we are hoping by July that we will move back to our normal pre Covid timetable. We will notify you of any changes in the coming weeks and months.

Before we can return to the pool Swim England have advised that you all need to complete the Health Declaration Form, link below. The form must be completed by all swimmers, coaches and teachers (NO FORM = NO SWIM ). Once you have completed the form please return the form to Kimberley Shelley, address can be provided by James or Doug or email to membership@radsswimming.org.uk.

Masters we do not need any forms from you at this time and will collect information from you when we can welcome you back to the pool.

Can all Standing Orders please be reinstated with effect from May 1st.

Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact James or Doug.

Should you have any queries relating to the forms or our return to training under Covid-19 guidelines, please contact us by email at: membership@radsswimming.org.uk

RADS Annual Membership Renewal 2021

Normally at this time of year I would be advising that the Swim England membership payment is due. We have been advised by Swim England that the annual membership fee has remained unchanged for both Category 1 and 2 swimmers.

The RADS committee have voted to change the way we charge membership fees and in recognition that this has been an extremely challenging year for all members we have decided to pay the fee on behalf of our members.

To explain how we plan to make this financially viable for the club we will be taking the following steps:

We will be making all members a category 1 swimmer (non-competitive) in January, this is in recognition that there are no competitions for the foreseeable future and the category 1 charge from Swim England is lower than a category 2 charge.

When we resume our normal RADS timetable and we are able to compete again we will make members category 2 (competitive) for those that need to be. We will also be reviewing our fee structure at this time and the current proposal will be to split the annual membership fee across the year and add a small amount on to the monthly training fees.

To ensure the club is not paying more than it needs to we ask that you complete this survey so we can see who plans to return in 2021 and who does not. Please select the button below, complete the form and submit it to us.
