Sunday morning Kirkintilloch cancelled                from 10th July until 31st July; starts back again 7th August

No other training sessions have been changed at this time but if you need more information please speak to your coach.  I’ll also send out information soon about our Scotia swim cap photo competition so take it with you wherever you go!!!!

Have a great summer guys.


Squad Managers


Each squad now has it’s own manager who will be the first point of contact between parents, coaches, committee members and our meet secretary.  Please feel free to speak to them if you have any queries about anything and also return competition sheets with payment to them.

Boclair SS relay

Jake Candy, Fraser Hamilton and Graham Baird (as well as Blair Johnstone from M&B) represented Boclair Academy yesterday at the Scottish Schools Relay Championships at the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh. They came 3rd in the 200 Metre Medley S1 Relay and 5th in the 200 Metre Freestyle S1 Relay.  Fantastic swimming boys – well done to you all!




Mini League results


A fantastic well done to all the awesome mini league swimmers, coaches, helpers, parents and supporters who all travelled to Ayr on Saturday.  The official swimmers results will be available in the next couple of days and as soon as they are available they will be posted on the website.


2016 Scottish Summer Meet


A very big CONGRATULATIONS to Ruairi McKinnon, Graham Baird and Saul Callan who have all been invited to the Scottish Summer Meet which is being held at Aberdeen in July this year.  This is a fantastic achievement and opportunity for all 3 boys, more information about this event can be found here on the SwimScotland website.

Club T-shirts


Just to let you know that the t-shirts that were recently ordered are now available.  Joyce Watchorn will have them at the Leisuredrome tonight either in the cafe or upstairs in the gallery, it would be great if everyone attending either the mini league final tomorrow or the swim meet at Cumbernauld this weekend was wearing their club t-shirts.   Unfortunately there is a 2 week delay with the shorts but we will let you know as soon as they are available.

Good luck to all the swimmers for this weekend.
