FAQs

Where does your club swim?
LSC's main goal is to encourage outdoor swimming, so members swim wherever they prefer. We co-ordinate so that members swimming at the same venue are aware, and can arrange to swim together if they wish

 

Do you run the swimming venue at the London Royal Docks?
We helped run it over winter of 2016/17, however London Royal Docks Open Water Swimming have resumed the day-to-day running now. For all enquiries relating to their venue, please contact them.

 

Can I use your swimming buddy scheme?
We're currently hugely over-subscribed with requests for swimmers to find a buddy, so regretfully are not able to match people right now. If you're interested in being a buddy, please get in touch!

 

Why should I join LSC if you don't compete or train in one place?

LSC aims to provide a welcoming atmosphere to both seasoned and beginner outdoor swimmers alike. That said, the modern iteration of our club is very new, so we're currently concentrating on promoting outdoor swimming through taking part in events and group training sessions at members' own paces and according to their schedules. As we grow we will allow our members to take an active role in deciding the club's activities – if you're a member/prospective member and wish to get involved in the running of our club, please get in touch.

 

Can you provide coaching?
We cannot currently provide you with formal outdoor swimming coaching. However we can provide you with a social supportive network of people to ask questions to and meet with. ge
