How the Club is Run ?

Like most other swimming clubs Chelmsford City Swimming Club is run and managed by volunteers, members and parents who give their own time in a variety of roles to ensure that the Club runs smoothly and continues to meet its legal obligations and its obligations to Swim England as the sport’s governing body.

Chelmsford City Swimming Club is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity.  As a not for profit limited company the Club’s constitution is set out in its Articles of Association and it is governed and managed by a Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors are elected at an Annual General Meeting by voting members of the company and discuss and plan many aspects of Club business and life but are fundamentally responsible for financial management; legal compliance, compliance with Swim England, and the development plans of the Club.

If you’re interested in becoming a Director then please contact the Chair at

Please refer to the Articles of Association if you’re interested in knowing more about how to qualify to be a voting member of the company.

Much of the day to day running of the Club is assisted by other volunteer officers and of course by a large team of coaches. Details of these roles and individuals can be seen by selecting the relevant button on this page.


The Club holds SwimMark accreditation, Swim England’s quality standard for clubs. It recognises high standards of governance, sustainability and effectiveness.
