It’s time to renew your Swim England membership


The New Year means it’s also time for BPSC to renew your Swim England Registration.

The registration insures you to swim, but also covers Swim England, Middlesex Region and some of BPSC costs.

It is an annual requirement and the process needs to be completed before the end of January, for everyone.
