††††††† St Albans Masters Swimming Club

Welcome

St Albans Masters Swimming Club (STAM) was formed in 2006 bringing together Masters swimmers (18 and over) from two St Albans swimming clubs, City of St Albans ASC (CoStA) and Verulam ASC, to take part in swimming events as one club.

 

The masters sections in CoStA and Verulam provide adult swimmers with the opportunity to improve fitness, and train in a friendly, supportive atmosphere.† Each club has swimmers of varying levels of ability and commitment. We welcome swimmers who are used to swimming lengths - from those who just want to have a structure around their swimming to help improve their general fitness to those who also want to participate in competitive events. Our first competition under the new clubís banner in June 2006 saw us winning the team event at the Herts Masters. We retained this prestigious trophy for eight years.

 

Our club has over 80 members and is registered with the Eastern Counties ASA, Hertfordshire ASA and the National ASA.† We are not all about swimming, we like to enjoy ourselves too and organise social events a few times each year, so that members from the two clubs can get to know each other better. Click here for new members information.

 

Our CoStA sessions are:

Sundays 8pm - 9pm at Westminster Lodge.

Mondays 9pm - 10pm at Westminster Lodge.

Wednesdays 9pm - 10pm at St Albans School, Abbey Gateway.

Thursdays 8.30pm - 9.30pm at St Albans School Abbey Gateway.

You can swim with Verulam on Sundays 6pm - 7pm at Westminster Lodge but it is only one lane and there is no coaching. Swimmers tend to be parents of children swimming with Verulam club.

Herts Masters

STAM regain Herts Masters Championship

After an amazing evening of competitive swimming STAM regained the title of Herts ASA Masters County Champions - taking home a haul of gold medals. Club Chairman Craig Kirkland said "19 of us arrived at the pool facing 11 teams, the biggest being Hemel with 24 swimmers and Hartham with 20. Both teams had more individual, and a lot more relay entries than STAM, it was going to be tough, but we were STAM! We had a fantastic attitude, spirit and atmosphere within our team and we shot through the water. The races came fast and furious but everyone was euphoric from great swims. It is a long time since I have had such fun relating stories of our swims and encouraging each other along".

Coach Josie Hoare was there supporting every STAM swimmer - you could hear her voice above all the others and it really spurred us on. Our thanks also go to the organisers, officials and helpers who give up their time to make these events possible and enjoyable.
