Weekend training cancelled!


We have just received notice from both Stirling University and the Leisuredrome that both facilities are to remain closed over the weekend due to the continuing weather. Unfortunately, this means there will be NO TRAINING for all squads on Sunday 4th March (including Long Course Training & Junior Dolphins).  

Fingers and toes crossed the wind/snow stops and training will be back on Monday. 

Yours Snowingly, 
Lindsay Hunter. 



Our AGM is fast approaching please see the Event Page here for details.

Training cancelled Fri 2nd February



We have just had word from EDLC that no schools, nurseries, hubs or sports centres will be open tomorrow due to the ongoing weather forecasts, this includes the Leisuredrome.

Therefore TRAINING TOMORROW EVENING IS CANCELLED (Friday 2nd March) for all squads.
