How to Join

Swim Ireland represents over 13,000 members registered in 155 clubs and individual associate memberships across the country.

Members renew their Swim Ireland membership/ “affiliate” to Swim Ireland annually through their Club. Completed affiliation documentation is due by 14th October each year. New members are welcome to join Swim Ireland at any time during the year through a Swim Ireland Club – there is a reduced fee for membership in the last quarter of the membership year (July/August/September).

An individual may join through Swim Ireland through an affiliated Club – please contact individual Clubs to check their membership requirements and fees. All new members must complete and sign (including parent/guardian for under 18’s) a membership form for the Club and Swim Ireland. The new member form for Swim Ireland will need to be signed and submitted by your new Club Secretary prior to acceptance of membership.

For further information please contact the Swim Ireland Office or use our club finder to locate a club near you.
