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 Amateur Swimming Association South West, and are accredited to Swim21 at Teaching and Skill Development level.
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 sincere apologies to Kate Gay and Tom Jones for omitting to mention their recent qualification as new Level 1 Teachers. We thought that we had mentioned their achievement in the last newsletter issued in February, but now realise we didn’t! Sorry guys, and well done! Good luck to Tom who will be leaving us for Camp America shortly.
Regarding newsletters, it is very time consuming to produce a monthly newsletter and the club have not issued one since February. We haven’t had a stream of complaints about the missing newsletters (!!) so we would appreciate your comments on whether a monthly newsletter is necessary with news also communicated via the web and email. If the membership would like the newsletters to continue then we will of course reinstate them – or perhaps a quarterly newsletter would be better. Please email your views to Fiona so that we can gauge interest. Thankyou!
The excitement builds again as another Clevedon swimmer, Harriet Dickinson, heads to Glasgow for the British Para-Swimming International Meet. Despite recent injury, Harriet has qualified for 5 events, with her campaign starting tomorrow. We will keep you updated, but there is live stream available on the British Swimming website here. All the best Harriet, Clevedon will be cheering you on!
Congratulations to Sophie Chambers and Meredith Pollard who have both just picked up their first Club Best Times – Sophie for the 200m butterfly, long course and Meredith for the 200m IM, long course. Well done girls! Overall since the beginning of the year over 50 Club Best Times have been achieved which shows just how our swimmers are developing and stepping up. The latest list of Club Best Times is now available on our Records page. Well done to all!
We would like to congratulate some volunteers who have recently passed their Teacher’s qualifications. Sally Foster, who passed her Level 2 Teaching Aquatics in January, with apologies for the late recognition, Sally! And 3 of our young volunteers who have just passed their Level 1 Teaching Aquatics – Ellie Chappell, Sam Hodge and Jack Instrall. Well done all and thank you!
