Welcome to the Chippenham Amateur Swimming Club Website. Chippenham Amateur Swimming Club was Founded in 1877, is Affiliated to the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) and Swim21 Accredited.
Spaces are currently available – Please see the Club > Membership page for instructions on how to express an interest.

[Please remember to email the Club Secretary, using the  contact_us link, if you change your email address]

Officials Needed:  Please, if you have spare time, would club members consider starting a Judge 1 Training Course, as this will make it much easier for us to host the Club Championships as a Level 4 meet next year. Officials also need to be provided by the club as  requested to support Openmeets, Counties and other events. Please contact Terry Coupland (or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) to register for a J1 Course [The next Judge 1 training course starts on the 19th January 2016 at Trowbridge 7-9pm], details of what is involved in the course are found here: http://www.swimming.org/assets/uploads/library/Judge_1_Workbook_v4.1_-_Candidates_Copy.pdf . The course involves 2 classroom based sessions and practical experience on poolside at local leagues and open meets. You don’t need to have any previous swimming experience and the course cost will be covered by the club. Ideally we need quite a few club members to obtain the Timekeeper Qualification of the J1 course before next years club championships starting some time in June/July onwards.
If we get enough officials, then county entries will be able to be attained from a number of the Club championship events, saving parents the cost of traveling to openmeets and paying for every entry. Spaces are normally limited so please don't delay.
