Please find below a link to information on the first Swim Ulster gala in this amazing new venue. Entries for this competition will have been distributed by coaches to selected swimmers.
Clear out the Clutter and recycle and help your Club fundraise for free. Last chance this season is before Wednesday 8th May.
Once again our Club’s fundraising supremo, Many McKeown, will be collecting bags of unwanted clothes, shoes, curtains, bed linen etc which can be turned into cash for the Club, benefitting all our swimmers
Earlier in the season we collected 87 bags and raised over £300 for the Club.
Please can you help us better this amount. Just think how much we could raise if every child could fill at least one bag (and how much less clutter we’d all have at home!).
Mandy has arranged for our recycling efforts to be collected and weighed on Wednesday 8th May so bags need to be passed over before this date. Please don’t worry about storage, just bag any unwanted materials and bring them to Mandy who will be at the pool most evenings at the tables in the Gallery.
Thanks once again to Mandy and to all those who continue to support the Club’s fundraising. Let’s get recycling!
During the Easter Holidays a squad of 21 Lisburn City Swimmers travelled to Spain to embark upon an intensive 6 day, long course training camp.
A massive thanks to our team managers, Karen, Liza and Jonny, Team Coach, Mark and to the swimmers for making the trip such a success.
Special mention must also go to all the parents, sponsors and friends of the Club who supported the trip through the fundraising activities organised throughout the year.
This year’s Antrim Open Swimming Championships will be held at Larne Leisure Centre for both gala days – Saturday 11th May and Sunday 12thMay.
This is still a Partnership Event with Lisburn City Swimming Club and Larne Swimming Club.
A Gala Programme of Events is attached.
A big thank you to all those who volunteered and attended the recent Team Managers and Stroke/Turn Judge courses run by Swim Ulster.
We always need more help and if you are interested, please contact the secretary (or speak to one of those who attended) for more information. You do not need any prior experience, just lots of enthusiasm.
Congratulations to all those swimmers selected as swimmer of the month for March (SOTM) in their squad. Keep up the hard work and commitment.
The winners were Emma Salters (Club) Caroline Ledbury and Ella Latuske (Dev 3) Jake Grant (Dev 2), Dylan Griffiths (Dev1), Nathan Wiffen (AG1), Anna Reid (AG2), Christopher Loan (NS), Paul Cox (NJS)
The warm up for tomorrow night’s Aquasprints Gala (Away) v Banbridge will begin at 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start.
Good luck to all swimmers competing in both this weekend’s galas against Ards this evening and Banbridge tomorrow night.

There will be no training in the main pool for any Squads on Wednesday afternoon from 5:00-7:00pm due to essential maintenance work being carried out.
To swimmers & parents in Sunday Dev.2 & 3 Squads,
I would like to apologise for another Sunday cancellation & also the lack of notice. I made the mistake of double booking with another Waterpolo tournament from 10am-4pm this Saturday and Sunday.
There are no further disruptions planned for Sunday sessions that we have been advised of at this time.
The pools will close for maintenance work in the summer from 24th June – 14th July.
With the new 50m Complex now open in Bangor, we would envisage far less disruption to our training & home competition programme in the future.
Apologies for the cancellation.
