Three free sessions are available before committing to our skills development squad.


We do our utmost to communicate information to parents and swimmers.  We use email, notice board, monthly Newsletter – “Dive In” which we email to you and we have a closed Facebook page which you can access by asking our secretary to ‘join you’.  Our website will be regularly updated with news, swim times, gala results etc.  Also, committee members are almost always at the pool to speak to you during training times. 

However, communication is a two-way thing and we request that you read our emails and regularly look at the notice board, web site, and Facebook page.  Also, the monthly Newsletter is now also available on the website with back copies.  If you need further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
