A message from our Club Captain Sarah Gill


I want to take some time to say a big thank you to our amazing coaches for all their hard work and commitment this year in helping shape us into the swimmers we are today. Without you, we wouldn’t be the team we are today.
Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

Your swimmers


Early Christmas Break Pool Closure


Last night, we were informed of an upcoming pool closure for essential pool maintenance by the Leisuredrome staff.

The entire pool hall will be closed next Monday 18th & Tuesday 19th of December.

This means there will be NO TRAINING on these dates next week.

DOLPHINS & MASTERS – this means your last training session of 2017 is on Sunday 17th December, (Dolphins expect some fun!)

SWORDFISH, SHARKS, ASQUAD – the pool will reopen on Wednesday 20th December. This date will be your last session as originally planned.

Apologies for the late notice, but this unfortunately is out of our control.

Reminder: For those swimmers not attending the Laser Tag party this Friday 15th Dec, swimming training is on as normal.

***Please remember land training has now finished until the New Year***

This year Scotia’s Christmas break (including pool closure for maintenance) from training will be:

Thank you


Can I personally thank ALL parents, coaches and of course the swimmers who mucked in yesterday and made the event what it was.

Thank you for all donations of food, drink and prizes for the raffle. Once again our buffet was the talk of the steamie!

An extra “big” thank you to our compere extrodinaire who also provided the pa system. You did a grand job and we could hear every word perfectly.

I have a pair of flippers if anyone has lost a pair.

There are still some EDLC raffle tickets if anyone wants some can you let me know.

FINALLY – Remember to put the Award dance date of the 2nd of February in your diaries. More details to follow.

Kind Regards
