Welcome to the club.

Herne Bay Lifeguard and Swimming Club is a successful, competitive club that promotes community participation in the sport of swimming.  The club is divided into three Junior sections for children 5+.

Focus on competitive swimming

We welcome all ages and abilities

It is run entirely by volunteers

Children wishing to join are asked to register for a trial where their abilities and potential are assessed.  If selected, they are invited to join the Junior Herons Squad or Senior Herons Squad. Those wishing to join the competitive Senior Herons Squad should have a proven track record.
