The aim of the gala was for everyone to feel comfortable and confident to compete, especially if they hadn’t before. The atmosphere at the competition was of inclusivity and sportsmanship with people from all the clubs mixing and socialising together.

About the Club
Out to Swim South was established in 2006 and provides swimming facilities for those who want to swim for fitness, those who have been swimming all their lives and those who wish to enter competitions, as well as providing a friendly environment for those who prefer to social aspect to the club.
Currently Saturday sessions are coached by an instructor, whereby Monday and Thursday sessions follow a 'set' provided by experienced swimmers.
We all share an enthusiasm to improve with like minded people and be part of an LGBT inclusive club. Women and men swim and we have all ages from 20s to 60s, it is open to all with a positive attitude. The club is an adult club and those under 18 are not able to participate.
How to Join
All new swimmers should contact email@example.com to advise that they are attending in order that we can make sure someone is available to greet you.
New swimmers who are unsure of their ability are invited to attend at Roedean Pool on Saturdays.
Unfortunately, as pool time is restricted we do not currently provide swimming lessons as part of the above sessions for non-swimmers. However the Coach can offer advice and guidance.
Your first swim session is free! After that there are several options for payment based on your income, how often you wish to swim and whether you intend to enter any competitions.
We encourage you to join us by paying monthly. Full membership gives you access to all training sessions at no extra charge. We offer the following options:
full membership is £42.00 per month
low-waged fee is £20.00 per month (income is less than £13k p.a.)
4 swims per month is £24 per month
6 swims per month is £30 per month
For those who swim less regularly, you can buy a PAYG pass, it includes 8 swims for £56 and it is valid for 90 days.
ASA Membership Fees
All club members are required to pay the annual ASA membership fee:
£27.20 - category 2 (for those entering competitions)

To get to the pool at Roedean, drive up to the gates, they will open automatically, then follow the road over the mini roundabout, then up to the top, where the road veers towards the left slightly, follow the road along, then if you look to your right there is a sharp turn, the pool is accessed from car park at the bottom of this turning. If you are driving, please park in the TTIP Car park which is on the right before the turning for the pool (we are not permitted to park in the car park in front of the pool). Cyclists can bring cycles into the pool building.
The closest bus stop is Roedean School (which is the stop after Roedean Cafe), numbers 12, 12a, 14 and 27 go east from North Street (stop C) and the Sea Life Centre (stop K) along Marine Parade towards Rottingdean.
The entrance is not the one facing the main road, just walk back a few metres and follow the pathway along the fence through the meadow to the gate. For road vehicles the gate opens automatically by sensor, so you
can either wait for a car or a cyclist to trigger the gate, or call the reception and tell them you are with OTSS.
If you need a lift for to Roedean, let us know in advance or post a request for a lift on our Facebook page (see link below). We often have other club members driving and a popular pick up spot is in front of the
old AMEX building on Edward Street at around 4:40 PM.
You will be made to feel very welcome and it's not all about swimming, we also have weekly socials on Thursdays (food) and Saturdays (drinks at a bar in Kemp Town). You do not need to contact us to ask to come along, just come along!
