We are proud of our grassroots commitment to giving every swimmer in the borough the opportunity to achieve their potential.  Squad trials take place four times per year and talent identification take place within the Harrogate Borough Council Swimming Development Scheme (SDS), Schools Swimming Programme and through our role as Swim England’s disability hub club for North and West Yorkshire.  

If you wish to be considered for a trial, please email



Swimmers pay a monthly fee directly to the council to cover training sessions.  Effective from April 2019 until further notice these are:

Junior £37.20
Hotshots £39.85
Intermediate £47.75
Foundation £53.00
Youth £58.35
Masters £58.35
Performance Development £74.30
Performance £84.90


In addition, swimmers must join HDSC in order to compete at galas. The membership fee for the 2019/2020 season is £90 for swimmers in the Talent Pathway and £105 for swimmers in the Performance Pathway.  The fee is payable to the Club upon joining, and each subsequent January.  Approximately half of this fee is paid to the ASA to provide the swimmer with a license to compete, and affiliation with the Yorkshire and North East Regions. The remaining fee supports the Club in performing its duties.
