How do I Join?

Thank you for taking an interest in our swimming club!

It starts here:
Thank you for showing an interest in swimming with Wycombe District swimming club for fitness, competition and fun. The benefits of swimming include building up your knowledge on safety, improved health, stamina, strength and meeting new people. As with all sports the more you put into the sport, the more you will get out of it.

Whether you are learning to swim, or already an established competitive swimmer, we would be pleased to hear from you.

Joining our Club

Ready to progress from your current swimming lessons?


(Lessons not at Wycombe Sports Centre)
We take children into the club's Stroke Improver Classes, after they have reached level 6/7 (NPTS) following their Learn to Swim Program. In our Stroke Improver section at the club we concentrate on the three main strokes of Front crawl, Breaststroke and Backstroke, with the emphasis on stroke work. Following the Stroke Improvers squads, swimmers progress into our academy program.

Extending your Aquazone lesson program and join the WDSC Bronze Academy

Wycombe District Swimming Club Academy starts at the Bronze level. The Bronze Academy is an integrated program in conjunction with the Aquazone Lesson Program at Wycombe Leisure Centre. The purpose of the Bronze Academy is to encourage swimmers to continue in their learn-to-swim program, whilst getting a taste of club swimming and benefiting from additional time in the water in a club environment.
The academy is selective and swimmers must be talented, committed and the right age. Selection is made by Wycombe Swimming Club Coaching Staff and we are looking for talented 5 to 9 year olds to join the academy.

Other ways to join our club
Wycombe District Swimming Club holds regular membership trials every month. The trials are used as a way to assess the current level of the swimmer and their potential for the future.

Trials are held on the 1st Tuesday of every month at Wycombe Leisure Centre. You must contact the club to book a place on a trial, trialists arriving on the day will not be accepted. Once you have been accepted onto a trial, the flow through our joining process is as follows:

If you are interested in applying to attend a trial session, please complete the TRIAL APPLICATION FORM.

Once you have been accepted to join a trial, you will be informed of the date and time of your trial and you will be invited to join one of our monthly trial sessions. Please be aware that demand for trials is high and you may not be invited to the next scheduled trial, you may be given a date in the future, if the next scheduled trial is over-subscribed.

The aim of the Wycombe District Swimming Club is to provide an environment for the coaching and development of swimming and to provide the opportunity and encouragement to enable all of its membership to reach their full potential within the sport of swimming


How does the Club Work?

WDSC is a members club. That means it is a club run by the members for the members. It's a great opportunity to get involved. A Committee elected by the members is responsible for the Management, operation and financial control of the Club. The club holds and AGM each year when it reports to the membership and elects the committee. Volunteers are active across all aspects of the club, from Coaching to administration. If you are already an experienced swimmer and would like to join any of our senior Performance squads or even the Masters, please contact our administration team at

We look forward to seeing you.
