    Thinking of moving to Mid Sussex Marlins from another competitive swim club?

    We understand that there are many things to take into account when considering if you should move club.  Work through the steps below and we can consider if Marlins is right for you…

    1. Contact us, using the form above, in privacy and confidence to discuss your needs and evaluate your goals.  We can help you determine if a move to our Club is appropriate for you;
    2. Arrange a free trial session to enable us to assess your swimming ability and, as important to you, enable you to sample a typical Mid Sussex Marlins training session;
    3. Following on from the trial session you may be offered a further week of training sessions, with the squad that we believe is right for you, completely free of charge and without obligation, so you have time to carefully consider our offer and whether you want to join us.
    4. We will issue a formal offer in writing detailing the place being offered, squad, training times and fees.  We ask for the first quarter to be paid in advance and after that fees are collected by monthly direct debit.
