        St Albans Masters Swimming Club


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 and all types of swimmers are equally welcome - 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 club’s 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.


Any beginners looking for adult swimming lessons please go to our page on Strokes Ahead Sandringham for more details.

Marathon and Olympics in one weekend

Huge congratulations to Sarah Stephens for completing the London Marathon, in her words “a personal miracle for me to run and finish it without stopping!” She enjoyed every part of it - the incredible London buildings, thousands of charity runners in amazing costumes, and running with the 38,000 mass. “I totally recommend it to everyone” she told us.

10 STAMers cycled the 12.5 miles from Lee Valley Water park to the Olympic pool. After an hours swim with a couple of extra STAMers, and a quick look at the Velodrome, they cycled back - stopping half-way for an all day breakfast/lunch. Craig K hadn’t had enough and cycled the 29 miles home.
