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.
Sue Brown, our new Home Gala Coordinator has the following message for you:
The club championships are fast approaching, the success of the championships is not just down to the fantastic swimmers, and coaches, and officials, but also the help from our volunteers. Without volunteers these events can’t happen.
The dates and timings for the events have now been published, we really need your help to make the sessions run smoothly, it would be great to see some new faces, as well as the regular volunteers helping on the day.
You don’t need any experience of swimming, just be keen to help and wear a smiley face, if you are going anyway, why not watch your swimmer from a different angle, and also stretch your legs.
Having done it myself, it’s really rewarding, and also the time flys by.
The sort of helpers we need are :marshals, entry desk, results recorders, runners, medal desk.
Helen Fry is our volunteer co-ordinator who will be able to answer any questions you have.

A new structure for British and National Championships and a new era for Clevedon ASC!! The format changed this year with one week of British Summer Champs and one week of ASA Summer National Champs, so a direct comparison to last year is difficult. But Clevedon has definitely had their best year yet at both levels of Championships. At the British Championships, we were represented by three swimmers – incredible. George making his first appearance at this level, Callum returning for the 2nd year in a row and Amelia making finals in 2 out of her 3 events.
At the ASA National Championships Harriet and Amelia both made it into finals whilst Finlay, on his debut appearance also made a final, just missing out on a medal by 0.20!!
Our congratulations to all of them! Have a well deserved rest now! For all our swimmers at Clevedon – these guys are no different to you. They started swimming just the same way. If there is a difference, it is that they know it takes hard work and perseverance to be the best that they can be. They have listened to their coaches and have pushed themselves hard. It has by no means been easy, but it has certainly been worth it! They know that in September the hard work will start again, and, if they push themselves just that bit harder in training (in and out of the water) and develop their skill sets at every training session, then next year it won’t just be finals, but podium places too! So – who’s going to join them in aiming to do their best, whether that be at county, regional, national or british championships?!!
Harriet has made it! She finalled in the 400m Freestyle on her last day of competition. Two swims very close to her personal best saw her maintain her 6th position in the Final. This rounds off a busy Nationals campaign on a very positive note for Harriet – well done!
Finlay had a storming heat of his 50m Butterfly at his first ASA National appearance. A strong swim with the adrenalin obviously pumping saw him post a personal best time of 27.45 to go into tonight’s final in 3rd place. So make sure you settle down to the live stream feed at about 7pm tonight if you don’t want to miss Clevedon’s first possible medal in this year’s Championships.
Good luck Finlay and enjoy!
This is his heat swim – he goes in Lane 0 right next to the camera!! 2:58:30
And now Finlay’s final – Lane 3. A great swim and another personal best time!
Harriet has had three more events at the ASA Summer Nationals but has just missed out on a final place in the 100m Freestyle, the 200 IM and the 50m Freestyle, taking 1st or 2nd reserve. Her final event is tomorrow and is the 400 Freestyle. Would be good to break through and get a final spot in that, so all the best to Harriet!
You can see Harriet’s swims here:
100 Free – 47.43
And here for the 200 IM and 50m Freestyle – 1:35:00 an 3:03:29
