Membership information

Children must be aged over 5 years to apply for membership.
Due to the very high demand for places, the club operates a waiting list for those wishing to join. Our club membership policy is as follows:

The waiting list is normally closed to general application. The waiting list is opened to general application whenever the Management Committee deems it appropriate. Notification will be via the club website and the club notice board.
All applicants will be required to participate in a trial to assess their swimming skills and when a vacancy arises, they will be allocated to a squad most suitable to their skills. Trials for joining the club are offered at various stages during the year, as and when places become available. New members wishing to join Kells SC, who meet the club membership criteria above, should contact the Club Secretary on to register their interest.

Please note that membership of Kells SC is accepted at the discretion of the club management committee. Once your swimmer has been offered a place in a squad, they must then become a member of the club. The membership year is from 1st September annually. Kells SC is an affiliated member of Swim Ireland and registration fees are also paid annually to Swim Ireland.


Kells SC normally runs three terms in line with the Autumn, Winter and Summer school terms. The annual Swim Ireland fees will be collected with the Autumn Term payment.

All communication regarding membership will be via email and renewal notices will be issued at least three weeks before the start of a new term stating when payment is due.

All payments must be made via the online payment system. Queries regarding payment should be directed to the Club Treasurer at

Please note: In order to ensure the smooth administration of the Club those members whose fees for a term have not been paid by the renewal closing date will be deemed to have resigned from the Club.
