††††††† 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.

 

More information here Club Times/Venues

 

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.

 

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

Herts Senior League

On Sat 22 April at 6:30, 25 STAMers gathered at the pool in Bishops Stortford to take on Ware, Hartham, Bishops Stortford, and a combined team from Hemel, Berkhamstead and Tring under the umbrella name Dacorum. There was very late good news for the 45+, discovering that their races were just one length, and some even later news for the 18+ discovering their relays were 2 lengths, but they took it well in their youthful stride. The races were fast and furious and quickly came one after another, we could have done with our officials slowing it down a little, but we did have a curry to get to! The atmosphere within the team, and encouragement of each other, was as always with STAM teams.... TERRIFIC and FUN!

A third way through, Bishops Stortford had galloped into a large lead with Dacorum just ahead of STAM, and although we overtook Dacorum, by the last race we had a feeling that Bishops Stortford had an unassailable lead, so we declared the Mixed 12 x 25m Cannon, as "Winner Takes All" and we won with 1 second to spare (after 3 minutes of racing!). Congratulations to all swimmers, officials and helpers who took part, thank you, and I look forward to our next team gala on the 22nd July, where we go to Aylesbury to take on the might of clubs from the surrounding counties.
