You do not need a TriSwim annual membership to swim at any TriSwim venue. You can swim with us as a non member, but joining with us will discount each swim and comes with LOADS of great benefits.

Upon your first visit, we will require every swimmer to undertake a short safety briefing. This is to ensure you are given all the appropriate information to keep you safe and enjoy your swimming experience. Your safety briefing is free with your membership and will consist of a dry land safety briefing and a 5 minute water based safety briefing – it is quick and easy!

Please note that children under the age of 16 can swim FOR FREE with each paying adult.
