Q: Can I join the swimming group coached sessions if I'm not a member of Clapham Chasers?
A: No, the sessions are only for Clapham Chasers members. You also won't be able to see the event on the website if you're not logged in.
Q: Can I join in a couple of swim sessions to get a feel for the club before being a Clapham Chasers member?
A: Unfortunately not, as you need to be a Clapham Chaser member to be able to register online. There should be enough information on the website to guide you, and you can use the following email address for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Do I need to pay for additional £5 per session, on top of the membership fee?
A: Yes. This covers the coach and the access to the pool.
Q: Does the membership of Clapham Chasers mean I can access the Clapham Leisure centre / Ernest Bevin pool for free?
A: No, you still need to pay the entrance there. The only exception is when you register for a coached session through us, in which case you won't need to pay to access the pool separately.
Q: How can I register for the group swimming sessions?
A: The event for each session will be available at 9:30pm on Mondays every week. You need to be quick because the slots usually go very fast in peak season. Exception: If you wish to go to the Weds PM session, register on the first link and then pay the £5 in cash to the coach on the day.
Q: Once I'm a regular attendee of a swim session, is it possible to reserve my place?
A: That's not possible unfortunately as there's a lot of demand for the sessions and we give everybody an opportunity to register.
Q: How do I know which sessions suit me more?
A: You can see the levels of the different sessions here.
Q: Which sessions are better for beginners?
A: The following sessions cater all abilities but you need to check the minimum requirements here: Monday AM, Wednesday PM, Sunday PM.
Q: What if I want to do swim clinics 1x1?
A: You can contact the coaches directly. More information about them is available here.
