        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.

British Gas ASA 3k National Open Water Masters Championships

Craig Kirkland proved himself once again by winning Gold at the Rother Valley Country Park in Sheffield. Having left the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow at 7.30am on the day, he managed to make the venue in time for registration and briefing. Well done Craig.

Henley Bridge to Bridge Sun 10 Aug

3 STAMers plus a friend braved the Thames stormy waters to complete the 14k swim from Henley Bridge to Marlow Bridge. Luke, another STAMer was there to support them cycling the route. With the threat of cancellation hanging over them they set off for the first 4k stop - one more clap of thunder after the initial cloudburst and it would have been over but thankfully it never came. All 4 completed the swim and came out of the water with big smiles on their faces. You can get a feel of what the start was like by going to STAMSC  on Youtube and see some more videos.
