It is with regret that I have to inform you that we will be unable to continue with our Diving Programme.
As you are probably aware, Joan our Diving Coach, has been experiencing problems getting to our sessions from her base in Bangor.
As a Club we have explored a range of options including requesting additional diving pool time from the Leisureplex and seeking alternative times that might work better for Joan.
Unfortunately our efforts at this time were unsuccessful. We will continue to work with Joan, the Leisureplex and Swim Ulster to develop options.
Swim Ulster are aware of the lack of qualified and experienced diving coaches. They will be recruiting a Diving Development Officer in February who will have responsibility for leading the development of the diving programme across the whole of Ulster – to include the training and recruitment of Diving Coaches.
Please accept my apologies for the late notice of the cancellation but we were working right up to the last minute to try to ensure the continuation of the programme.
Chair, Lisburn City Swimming Club
