Next Saturday morning Viking Coaches will hold a meeting at 8.30am in Clondalkin Leisure Centre for all parents and swimmers. Topics will include:
Discussion on Galas – plus list of Galas that swimmers are expected to compete in -
Qualifying times for Leinster and National competitions -
50M Training -
Extra sessions that we might be able to offer -
Away Gala –
This will be a very informative meeting, and we encourage everyone to attend immediately after training on Saturday morning. We expect to hold the meeting upstairs in the Spectator area at Clondalkin.
Following Trials on Saturday 30th August, we will be welcoming a number of new swimmers over the coming weeks.
Well done to all, we look forward to seeing you at training!
It’s time to get back into training for the coming season!!
Training will resume on Saturday 30th August.
There will be no midweek training until Ballyfermot re-opens, we will train only on Saturday mornings in Clondalkin, the same arrangements as we have had for the past year.
SENIOR SQUAD 6.15am to 8.15am
JUNIOR SQUAD 6.45am to 8.15am
Normal weekday training will resume as soon as possible, all indications are that Ballyfermot will re-open by 22nd September.
We are delighted to announce that Viking Swimming Club has signed an agreement to train at the Ballyfermot Sport and Leisure Centre, commencing this September. Ballyfermot has undergone maintenance work for the last year, and is scheduled to re-open in mid September. In the meantime we are hoping to organise Saturday sessions for the 30th August and 6th of September in Clondalkin.
The new pool is 25M, and has 6 lanes in total. It is a beautiful pool, with great facilities. We have negotiated access to the Teenage Gym for swimmers on a Saturday, and Membership reductions for families who are interested in joining the centre. More details will follow on these later. Great news for many parents and swimmers is that we will be able to resume Junior training on Saturday evenings once we move, instead of Saturday mornings.
The training schedule is planned as follows
Thursday 7.30 to 9.00pm*
Saturday 5.45 to 7.15pm
*Three lanes will be available to the club on Thursdays. The squad will be split, based on ability, to two 45 minute sessions. Your assigned session will be notified before we make the move.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 5.30 to 7.00am
Saturday 7.00 to 9.00 am
