Welcome to the website of Clevedon Amateur Swimming Club! We are a friendly club aiming to promote and encourage the sport of competitive swimming. Based in Clevedon in North Somerset, we are affiliated to the Somerset County ASA and the ASA South West, and are accredited to Swim21 club.
The Club operates in a friendly atmosphere which encourages its members to develop in a relaxed but committed environment. Members that show commitment will undoubtedly personally benefit from the results of their hard work, as well as having the satisfaction of being a member of a great team of friends.
We welcome swimmers of all ages and abilities. Swimmers enter into competitive swimming through our progressive squad structure. The Club holds or attends competitions for all ages and abilities. The purpose of this is to provide a natural progression for the swimmer ranging from the Club’s Novice Gala to National Competition.

Our latest press release includes highlights of our brilliant young volunteers and the opportunities provided by Somerset ASA and the club, as well as the fantastic results from the recent Henleaze Challenge Shield and Southern Junior League. Check it out on our PRESS RELEASE page. Six young volunteers from the club – Erika Mason, Elena Crossan, Livvy Finnie, Agnes Gay, Chris Burnett and George Leaman all completed the region’s Young Volunteer programme and were presented with their certificates last weekend, along with Ellie Chappell, Jack Instrall, George Symonds and Sam Hodge who completed the first Somerset ASA Young Coach Academy. We are lucky to have these young people giving up their time to encourage and support our younger swimmers. We hope they will continue even though the programmes have now finished for this year. Watch out for them poolside and show your appreciation!
The next Young Volunteer and Young Coach programmes for 2014/15 will be launched soon for volunteers aged 14 to 25 – so keep an eye out for more info!
Our Badgeman, Mark Symonds, has been busy crunching numbers and has produced the latest list of achievers. Mark is pleased to report that, since last Saturday, club swimmers have achieved over 100 new awards! Great news! The sale evenings will be on Tuesday, Thursday 9th October and Friday 10th October at Strode between 6.45 and 7.45pm. The list of awards is on our BADGE & CERTIFICATE page which includes an explanation of what the awards are all about for our newer members.
We thought that any swimmers who were involved in the Inter Primary Schools gala at Portishead Open Air Pool back on the 9 July might be interested to know that there are some very good photos available. Visit their website to check out the slideshow – INTER SCHOOLS. If you want to order, please note we are not involved, you need to follow instructions on the website and on this letter from Open Air Pool which has been sent to all schools who took part. Thanks to Sally Foster for providing the info!
Ellie Chappell and Jack Instrall, our Senior Club Captains, have produced a report from the Henleaze Challenge Shield. They were very impressed by what they saw! Read it here – CAPTAINS’ REPORT
The Club Champs 200m freestyle results are now posted on our Club Champs page. Some fantastic statistics about the event – 102 entries, 8 first time swims and 65 personal best times. For our younger squads it was great to see County qualifying times (based on last year) – 1 in Improvers (Clara Finch), 2 from Advanced (Woody Hewitson and Bertie Williams) and 9 from Junior Comp (Megan Fry, Meredith Pollard, Sophie Chambers, Erica Godfrey, Ella Jenkins, Abigail Phipps, Toby Foster, Blayne Stanbrook and Mason Smith). There were, of course, County times too from Senior Comp and Performance, but too many to list here. Massive well done to all.
Thanks also to our officials and helpers without whom the event could not happen. We would also like to thank all the swimmers for being so quiet at the starts of all the races. It really does make a difference to the running of the event and it’s not easy to get over 100 kids quiet – so thanks again all and please keep that going at all our events coming up!
