National Rescue Test Qualification

Posted: 31 July 2022


The Club is offering the opportunity to all members to gain the NRASTC (National Rescue Award for Swimming Teachers and Coaches) qualification.

The training will be over two Sundays (25th Sep and 2nd Oct) and be for 6 hours on each day with the venue likely to be St Edward's School Cheltenham. The full cost of the course will be paid for by the Club.

A small number of people in the club hold the qualification already which enables us to swim without lifeguards at Archway pool in the morning and on Tuesday evenings. There will people from the club attending on the above dates either taking, renewing or gaining training hours for the qualification.

If you are interested and want to find out more please let me know. Alternatively see the RLSS web-site for more details.

Stroud Masters Membership 2022

Posted: 1 January 2022

Hello Everyone

Please find attached the Club membership form for 2022. If you could complete and return to myself and pay the annual membership fee into the club account before the end of January that would be great. If the membership form and fees are not received by the end of January then I'll assume that you do not wish to renew and your ASA registration will cease.

It is important that the membership form is fully completed and returned so we can keep our records up-to-date especially if your details or contact details have changed over the last year.

I'm pleased to say that the membership fee remains the same as previous years at £45.00 (£22.50 for second claim) as do the session fees (see below):

Sunday morning and Tuesday evening sessions: £5.00 members (trial sessions also at £5 per session up to a maximum of three sessions)

For the weekday morning sessions

  • Early weekday morning sessions: £5.00 per casual swim (pay as you swim) or
  • £45 per month in advance/SO for 3 morning sessions each week per month
  • £33 per month " " any two mornings each week per month
  • £17 per month " " any one morning each week per month

If you have any queries please let me know. Could you also let me know if you don't intend to renew your membership,

Thanks & Happy New Year
