Update 11/11/13 - outage


You will be aware that we had serious power outage issues in the pool last night resulting in loosing light in the pool.


We are very happy with the emergency planning and management of the incident by our trainers and, indeed, our swimmers.


This is something we take seriously.  We have written emergency plans that include everything up to and including evacuation should it be necessary. Crew had completed refresher training this term so we are pleased with the management of our lifesavers.


DCU are working to identify the cause and we will continue to work closely with them to improve our planning.


Don't hesitate to contact us to ask any questions about our safety planning.


p.s. we hope you like your new lanyards - we'll update you on our plans for them later in the week – remember to bring them every week.

our birthday !


well we weren't kidding  - the most complex dry lifesaving session we've ever attempted 

a life-sized lifesaving board game played by 140 people. its hard to describe a "sthoee game of throws" its lifesaving our style. it starts with toby being thrown over a wall........

Everyone left with out new sthoee keep calm t-shirt and a limited edition Lifeguard moneybox  - start saving 

tonight 22 years ago we first opened our doors, 22 years later we've had our best year, by  long shot, we are stronger than we've ever been, a great crew, more trained trainers than ever. 

and the best kept secret...........

there are so many people who work to make this happen. its a privilege to volunteer with you all (and to eat pizza when we done) we wont embarrass anyone but you know who put in the hours, thanks

lifesaving on Sunday – ignore at your peril


It’s important to be on time on every week but especially this Sunday.

   1.   a student intervarsity archery event is on in DCU
   2.   we will not be in our normal rooms
   3.   we will not be at reception between sessions

- if you are late for theory please wait with your parents until your swim time
- do not pass the barriers / reception without a trainer
- a late start is not possible for the dry sessions

tldr; if you choose to abandon your kids at the door after 6.30 / 7.30 we
will not be there, the place will be full of strangers with weapons and you will miss out!

Its birthday night and we have something new lined up , its called a Sthoee Game of throws. 

Its not like anything we have ever done before.......
