Why Join EDSC?

EDSC is a fun, family run swimming club based in Erith, South East London. We were established in 1912 and are one of the oldest swimming clubs in the area. As you will see on this page the Club caters for swimmers of all ages. If not already in the teaching groups, possible new members are expected to complete a trial. If you are thinking of joining please contact John Burdett on 07788 668514, or e-mail john@edsc.org.uk

Training Times

The club operates a squad system whilst also offering an academy teaching programme with many classes. Effectively, swimmers are expected to swim up through the squads as they improve. For more information on the individual Squads including training times please click HERE.

Squads and Coaching Staff

The Club squad system comprises of 10 squads, 3 providing teaching, 6 providing coaching and the remainder offering synchronised swimming.  Swimmers are expected to progress through the squad system that provides a gradual increase in training time per week from Academy through to Elite Youth.  For those older swimmers that wish to continue to train but with a reduced level of dedication, there is the option of swimming in the Senior squad if you are at least 16 or Masters if you are at least you are 25.  See the Squads page for more details.
