Do we have to be a member of Teesdale Leisure Centre(TLC)  to swim with TTS?                                               

Though all sessions are at  TLC, it  is  not  necessary to  be a member of the TLC as we operate independently  from this  council–run pool.


What level of swimming is  required for entry to the club?                                                                                                         

Level 6-7 swimming proficiency is a recommended, though evaluation in trial sessions is equally important as individual swimmers' abilities (see this  SE link for  details: )


Does TTS offer free trial sessions?                                                                                                                                      

We offers up to 2 free sessions to  swimmers applying for  membership. This allows coaches to  evaluate  level s of proficiency  but also  importantly allows swimmers and their  parents to  consider whether the club offers what  they  are looking for. Please notify committee by

e-mailing us at about intended dates you  wish to  use these trial sessions.


Where do we access forms?                                                                                                                                                      

All forms required to  join (application/medical  and code of conduct) are to  be  found under  ‘Join Us’ on this  TTS  website.


Who do we send forms back to?                                                                                                                                   

Where ever possible, please fill the forms in electronically, save them to  your  device and  send to  A committee member will process these forms and confirm receipt. (If you are having trouble then print the forms and fill them in and re-scan and send to the same  TTS e-mail)
