Sunday 13th lifesaving @ DCU,

Hi all, just a heads up on dry work kicking off Sunday 13th October

Check your times , 630 for 730 swim, 715 for 815 swim, 

be on time, dress suitably to roll around the floor and leave your valuables at home ! Remember we can't facilitate late comers , the venue is too big!

Existing swimmers , you know the drill, it's first night dry for our new class attendees, they take priority for one night of the year so we'll need you with your eyes and ears open to support  new starts and you'll be demoing skills and gear

It's hard to believe that we're 5 weeks back - Anyone not already registered for autumn 2019 can register for places but be aware that we've a waiting list in place 

Finally a quick and friendly reminder on drop off and pick up: 
the campus is huge shared space, please ensure swimmers are supervised until handover to instructors, 
collection is ten minutes after swim ends, if a swimmer takes longer than that to get changed they may be a little .......young for us !
A swimmer from first hour is welcome to wait on the pool bank for collection after the second swim but nowhere else. We're sorry but we are uable to childmind other siblings, relations or friends

New starts , you'll be getting your hands dirty tonight and it's going to be great!

See you in dcu)

Water quality Tuesday

Hi all, 

You've probably guessed it. 

Following the very heavy rainfall we don't believe water quality will be sufficiently good for a swim this week. 

Dublin water suffers badly from heavy rainfall.

Enjoy the week, summer is coming......

No swim Sunday 24th

Mid term, enjoy the weekend, enjoy the rugby, no swim Sunday 24th

Sunday, February 10, 2019

On time.....

Hey all, important to be in time every week.

But next week particularly important........

Sunday, February 3, 2019

So the story goes…..




At the end of last year we were told that we had received gear sponsorship. We pride ourselves on the gear we have in place. This was a surprise and, as always, welcome.

We were not ready for the volume of what was presented, on its own it would put us as one of the best equipped lifesaving and lifeguard clubs in Ireland, putting it on top of what we already have in place puts us in a whole new space.

We have always been blessed with generous and thoughtful supporters who have helped us on ski, trainers, courses, mannikins, boats and AED over the years. The sheer generosity of this sponsorship has left us speechless, there is no way to properly articulate our thanks.

It's always a pleasant surprise when people, unprompted, go out of their way to make someone else's life easier. We promise to pay it forward.

So 'Dodo' thanks , thanks and thanks again, we know you said it was your pleasure, but really, go raibh mile maith agat.
