welcome to the club.

On behalf of Herne Bay Lifeguard & Swimming Club we would like to welcome you and your child to the Club.

The Club is a competitive swimming club, which provides opportunities for young people to receive coaching in a friendly environment as well as the chance to join in swimming competitions at various levels. We hope you enjoy your time as a Club member and that your swimming technique and stamina continue to improve during the coming years.  Club members only may join our Facebook page (which is a closed group for Club members) for informal news and information - search for 'Herne Bay Swimming Club' and request to join. Alternatively, please click the icon below:

This section of the website contains some basic information about our structure, sessions, fees and hopefully answers some of the questions you may have. Once you are a fully-fledged member, you will be given access to the members area which will give you all of the information you need to be an active member of the Club.
