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
