How to Join

Do you want to train and race competitively? Well Salford may be the place for you…


Done via the Lead Teacher at each pool and the Coaching Staff

1. Swim Stars 3 is a 12 Week Programme of Lessons – Once joined up at the appropriate Fit City Centre under the Swim Stars 3 Group you have access to 2x1hour sessions at your Centre.

2. Your SS3 Teacher or a Competitive Training Scheme Coach may recommend a trial/assessment with the Swim Stars 1 & 2 Coach, Alex Eadie. This can be organised by email at where you can attend an SS2 CTS Session as a drop-in. The swimmer will be assessed, as well as having the chance to experience the CTS and if successful, has the opportunity to join the squad.

3. If unsuccessful you will continue swimming in your Swim Stars 3 Group for the next course of 12 weeks and try to attend the 2 x 1 Hour sessions per week on a regular basis.? ? ?4. If you are successful then as a member of Swim Stars 2 you will automatically sign up for membership of the City of Salford Swimming Club which is the Competitive vehicle of the Training Programme. You have to be a member of the Club in order to compete and enter competitions.


Usually swimmers are recommended by their teachers from lessons. However if you are from a different local authority, a member of a local club or club outside Salford then please contact Adam Naylor at to arrange a drop-in session or contact John Stout, Head Coach at for a drop-in higher up the scheme.
