URGENT – Novice League – 27th April

I have just received an email to advise that warm up on Sunday at Dunfermline is at 9.00 am not 8.30 am as previously advised.  Please be on poolside at 8.40 to register with the coach.

Also, as there are only 6 lanes at Dunfermline, the gala will run for a bit longer than previous Novice Leagues.  We will probably finish around 12.30 pm.

Afternoon session will be later as well at 13:30.

Swim Club Membership Renewals – Time to Get Serious


Thank you to everyone who has paid membership and SASA fees – we really appreciate your prompt response. There are unfortunately  a significant number of people who still need to pay.
Julie (membership secretary)  will be working hard to do all the administration of SASA payments and needs a couple of weeks to do that, with a deadline of the end of March.
Jen (Treasurer) will shortly put up a list of those who still need to make payment on the club notice board  to ensure those who do not have access to email or facebook, or have not seen reminders on the website, or twitter , or whose dog ate the form etc etc  are reminded.
If you want to avoid seeing your name on the list, please pay now and return the membership forms. 

If you have difficulty making the payment, please let Jen or me know – (in person or via the club email address

SASA and membership  payments are necessary to keep the club running smoothly but the SASA payment is particularly important. If your swimmer is not SASA insured they cannot go poolside within the club.

Sorry for reading the Riot Act  – but it is time to get serious before we have to exclude children from the pool, never a pleasant experience for the coach or swimmer.
If you do not wish to renew please also let us know and we will not hassle you further.
Stuart (Secretary) – in support of Jen  (the Bean Counter)

The pool is closed – so no swimming on Wednesday 28th.

Fife Leisure Trust have closed the pool today more information here –

This closure may be tomorrow as well – please keep an eye on the Pool website for updates.

Thank you



Dear Swimmers, Taxi-Drivers and Coaches (yes, Coaches – read on!)
Sport Relief is coming your way.  On Thursday 22 March, there will be an all club swimathon.  The aim is to swim as far as possible and get the sponsor money rolling in.  At the same time, there will also be a bake sale going to replace those hard-swum calories.
Entry to the Swimathon will be £2 per child (pay on the night), and from next week sponsor forms will be available from the Club Noticeboard for you to raise even more money for Sport Relief.
5 to 6 pm: Minnows 1 & 2, Piranhas;
6 to 7 pm: Dolphins and Sharks/Plus;
7 to 9 pm: Development, Training, Gold and Wednesday Swimmers.
In the middle of all this, there will be (for one night only….) the COACHES VS MADS (Mum And Dad Swimmers) RELAY RACE.  Yes, kids at last, you get to critique all those adults that are continually telling you how to swim, and pay  close attention to the style, technique and commitment from the coaches (watch out for  warm up demonstrations, no talking at the start, no breathing in the red zone, kick, kick, kick, STREAMLINE etc.)
For any parent wishing to enter this Blue Riband event, a list will also go up on the Noticeboard – no talent needed, just enthusiasm and a willingness to be humiliated….
Exact race format will be decided closer to the date 🙂
More information to come, but please save the date.  Baking contributions and parent volunteers to count lengths on the night extremely welcome and very important.
The Committee
