        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 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.

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

STAM Social Tri - Sat 13 June

Despite a distinctly wet and misty morning, 13 STAMers made it to Stanborough Lake for a 7am swim. Once changed they sped off to Erol’s in Hatfield who, undaunted by the sudden influx, served breakfast in the blink of an eye. The next challenge was a rain propelled 18 mile cycle  from Blackmore End to Datchworth Green, with a stop for tea, coffee and cakes. Feeling both refreshed and a little sluggish at the same time - 16 STAMers cycled 9 miles back to base at Blackmre End, where -you guessed it - we had a large buffet lunch! The 7.5 mile walk after lunch was fast and muddy in places. Willow, Jackie and Paul’s springer spaniel must have run about 30 miles but she kept 19 of us amused, closely followed by Annette’s white trainers. The evening was rounded off back at Blackmore End by a superb BBQ and a selection of desserts fit for any triathlete. The 26 people at the BBQ gradually drifted away as the circle round the fire pit grew smaller and tighter and significantly smokier. A big thank you to Lisa and Neil for hosting the day, and to Sarah and Craig for organising it.
